Default Bally Hi Deal 1975

I have an opportunity to buy a 1975 Bally Hi-Deal machine. It's not working but judging by the condition of the play surface and perfect back-glass, I'm keen to grab it! For less than $1,000, the artwork on this early, one player machine is way ahead of it's time.
My question is, Although I've worked on electro-mechanical machines and I know the time consuming part is servicing all points, checking fuses, etc. What do others think might be a problem?

Bally emís are complicated to work on. Do you have experience working on Ballyís? Single players are little easier. You may be buying a machine that someone canít figure out how to fix. A non popular Bally em non working project should sell for about $300-600. If the schematic isnít included with the machine, buying one is a must. The pinball database doesnít show one to download. Surface mounted fuse holders on ballys were always a problem, so expect to replace them.
