Bow and Arrow pinball by Bally 1974

This Bally electromechanical pinball machine is a good example of state of the art in 1974.  The "Bow and Arrow" is a 4 player with a lot of cool (at the time) features like the ball gate, rotating lights giving a roulette like out-hole at the top, dueling bonus systems in the middle, four fast pop bumpers and a fast action play that makes it fun to play.  This unit has seen better days, lots of where and grime, lots of worn parts.  This game took way too long to fix for us.  We are getting way too many profit killers like this one coming in our shop.  We had to raise our flat rate on EM's recently because of games like this.  To add insult to injury, we never got paid for this job.  The customer "forgot the check" but "would send one out the next day". We got screwed....    The service notes follow:
