What type of parts do you need? Is that Wrestlefest the four player cab? Pinball isn't really my expertise but I can probably help if you need wiring/circuit board help. The cab you have is probably not wired JAMMA, being a 4 player setup, but... if you want to change out sticks/buttons I've got Happ parts laying around I probably won't use. Everything under the hood is fairly straight forward with your only risk of a painful and quick death coming from the monitor... if you don't know how to discharge it, don't touch the monitors pcb or caps.
OK... as for where to get games, ebay is your best bet. All local sellers know what they have and will gouge for it. These games have almost zero value on the secondary market... they are seen as money makers only. For the home collector, be prepared to pay a lot for popular games, since the nostalgia factor inflates their value. I can hook you up with some good sellers if you tell me what you're looking for. You'll also want to wire a second harness into that cab to run true JAMMA. I've done these successfully wired to a switch, up for dedicated, down for the second harness... works really nice. Let me know if you need any help with that stuff, but you can find all you need online with a few simple google searches.
I've gotten out of the arcade hobby, but at the height of my madness I had 4 cabs running in my tiny apartment (there was a time when walking across the room produced dangerous squeaks and groans from the floor...). Also if you need any work done, I've owned and restored cabinets since I was 13 years old, so I'd be happy to offer some advice/point you in the right direction, if nothing more.

Seeing as the older it gets, the harder and more expensive the replacements will be. They are putting a new 25 inch monitor in the wrestlefest and yes it is the 4 player model.
If they are unable to get the South-park game to like new status I do have the option of a refund. The one they are re-building has a lot of use on it. this game is going to cost me $3,700.00 with shipping and set-up. If you know somewhere I can get a better deal let me know.

Wrestlefest brings back some great memories.

Thats why I picked it up. The 4 player action should make for some entertaining fights between buddies.

I really don't know the costs on pinball other than it's restrictive, as I guess your post verifies. Seriously, your best bet for buying anything arcade-ish is at one of these:

I am thinking about getting High Speed by Williams for my next pinball game. As for Video games It would be great to get Sega Sport Fishing as well.
I really want to get this SouthPark game though it is fricken hilarious and I am a huge fan.

I have a Bobby Orr Pinball game and I found a mint table for it on Ebay along with other parts. The parts are easy to find and they are mostly interchangable between all of the Bally games. Getting it worked on was easy since there are a lot of out of work guys who fix these things.
