Pro Football Playfield
Comments on the Playfield.
It is rather difficult to hit either of the vari- targets even with the four flippers. The machine works best when set on "high tap" from the main transformer- it gives a little extra power needed for the 4 flippers.
Tips for a High Score:
My all- time high score so far is 117,650/ Point Score 99 on 7/19/00.
For those of you who have the Pro Football, I have for sale or trade reproductions of the labels you see on the 4 flippers. For more info, e- mail me from the main page.
As of 8/26/00 this machine has a happy new owner and good home. I will miss it after all the work I put into it, but I now have the room to take on other projects.
Backglass/Backbox Restoration- Before
As you can see,the backglass and cabinet were in pretty bad shape. Here is a picture of how it looked before I started any restoration.
Backglass/Backbox Restoration- After
Here you see the Back box after restoration. I found and bought a very good condition glass to replace the bad one.
I wish to acknowledge people who helped me in various ways with this machine:
