A very strange thing:

The "Aces & Kings" (Williams 1970) I am working on has the following ball order: 1 - 3 - 5 - 2 - 4

Do I have to resolder/move the wires for the "Ball No" lamps or might there be an easier solution?

does it actuall play like that or are you looking at the glass? if it plays like that then yes. also check 3ball

Is it really 1-3-5-2-4 instead of 1-4-2-5-3, that was the usual order of Williams ball in play lamps back then? I am quite sure you dont have to move any wires.

Oh, how embarrasing!

My excuse: I am used to Bally EM:s, not Williams EM:s.

I have the back glass off while renovating and couldn't imagine that the order is 14253.

So, everything is ok. Thanks!

I think the numbers were set up that way to not make it obvious that it could be set for 5 ball play when it was only set for 3 balls. That way balls 1, 2, 3 make a normal left-to-right progression to the end of the “ball in play” area.
