Finishing up restoring a Williams Aztec and have all kinks worked out except for one. When the ball goes down either L or R inside bottom rollover switches it is supposed to award 5,000 points. What is happening on my game is that the first time either rollover switches are activated, it awards the correct 5,000 points however the second time either switch is activated, it only awards 3,000 points. It is consistent with the every other time points. I have been thru the 5,000 relay, the 1,000 relay and the center target relay. Any ideas?

Quoted from jojo97222:

the second time either switch is activated, it only awards 3,000 points. It is consistent with the every other time points.

If the 5000 Point relay stays activated for the same length of time when it awards 3000 as when it awards 5000, check this switch on the motor.

For a switch to work 3 things are necessary:
1) When open, there should be a small space between the contact points (duh)
2) When closing, the long blade's contact point should push the short blade's contact point enough to move the short blade
3) The contact points should be clean, which they usually will be if #2 is happening
