That is super cool Ralph - what a find. Keep your updates coming - I absolutely love your repair posts. Cheers.

Ps. Nino mentioned a buggy game similar - it's not Moon Patrol is it (I think Moon Patrol was more a video game & maybe Nino's talking about a beach buggy)?
Cheers Andy , i will try get a few pics of the games i fix in the future , But here is the Dune Buggy game made by Midway , The one Nino mentioned. These are from the net , not mine unfornatley

The one I remember was more like a pinball with the revolving surface as the playfield area. It was a very large machine. Having said that, everything was big for me in 1975 ish.

A few more pics showing the sheer size of this thing! I still wonder how we got it into the house  %.%
This picture shows the Height, at 6ft tall ,  Like the size of a small photo both . And i reckon she weighs around 100kg at least
 When the Landscape assembly is removed you can get inside to work on it , which i did when fixing the Fluro sockets etc .
 The game plays great except for a intermittent switch "Explosion sound " issue.. But Explosion sound does work when a "Hit" is made
It's only me that knows! , most people wouldn't notice at all.. Maybe DD's would  &&
Fantastic old machines these EM arcade game are,everyone enjoys them that play em ..

Game paperwork , Showing adjustments and installation procecdures etc.
Last picture shows 'Wipers' under the Mirror .
 These align with the landscape Wipers and the sewn on metal patches under the landscape and coils to register a 'Hit' .
Personally i just use the Force and Stay on target!

It certainly came up great. As Nino said, it looks like a blast to play. Very cool.
