I purchased a 1962 Williams World Series Pitch & Bat earlier this year from a restorer who had purchased a group of these machines from the arcade in Garden City, SC. For the most part, the machine seems to be functioning fine. There are a few features that would be nice to have functioning, but are not necessary to enjoy playing the game. I will be tweaking those things gradually...
Recently, the score got stuck on 00 and would not advance when runs were scored. I popped off the back and have discovered that the reset coil is not firing on the run step-up unit. Looking for some tips on where to begin to diagnose/fix the problem. Question: should the reset coil fire and reset the stepper at game reset, or is it triggered once the stepper wheel goes as far as it can go?
Anyway, even though I have been playing this game for decades (including the row of them that used to exist in Garden City, SC), I am brand new to repair/restoration, so please be gentle. Any tips/advice/direction is much appreciated.
