nice pics, don't you just love that photobucket!  We can all share our 
adventures, lol  I think your pain is in better condition than mine on the 
mech tray.  There is quite a bit of rust towards the front.  The good news 
is.......it's not so noticeable when you look at it because it's so far 

I was wondering about cleaning up the mech.....did I read somewhere you 
could spray ammonia on all the working parts (gears contacts etc) but not 
get the motor wet?  Then rinse with spraying clear water on it?

The mech is so dirty, the pinbank is on it's side, don't know if you can get 
that wet either.  There are 3 motors on this, a large black one and 2 
stacked to the right of that.  I don't think they can get wet and I could 
wrap them in a plastic bag if I am just going to spray ammonia.  I am at a 
standstill until I figure out how to clean that Mech on the sawhorses, LOL
