When you replace the two conductor power cords on your EM's with a grounded cord, do you attach the machine common to the ground wire? Curious what you do before I change out all mine.
First get a good pair of strippers.
No not those.
Makes it easier to do the job. Not mandatory the other plier stripper style works too!
On your replacement plug like you are going to plug it in to an outlet , from the outlet perspective you have three slots ,hot ,neutral,and ground.
the one on the right assuming the ground slot is an the bottom,just like a smiley face,the left wider slot is neutral the right narrower slot is the hot.
Check for continuity with a meter so as to put the wires in the correct positions.
On image #2064 #2065 I put the ground wire (green) on the tranformers frame ,run the hot to the fuse,and the neutral to the transformer terminal Neutral tap.
Then for grounding other items such as the relay bank(#2064),coin door,and other potential shock hazards you run wire from the frame of the transformer or * note* some machines have a common ground point set up on them too ,just connect to the proper place that works for you using ring terminals for your Grd connection is good option.
Then connect your new cord ,solder, wirenuts ,ect . then use either shrink wrap or electrical tape ,use 3M brand 88 as the quality is better than the cheena stuff! use the cheena stuff to bundle the wires together.
Use wire clamps to hold the wire fast to the cabinet. #2398 last pic ,this was soldered to pig tails of wire so that pic is a different pin! * note in-line fuse because I used that for the run to the front of the pin for a switch I installed,basically the hot comes in on the cord I splice it to a cut to size 2 wire extension cord zip tie it to the harness connect to the switch then connect to the hot load wire to the pin.
Good to go.
Sorry for the hi-jack EM-Pinman
Now back to the regular scheduled program.
