I am working on a Bally Bow and Arrow em machine and am down to a scoring/kick-out issue with the Top Kick-out Hole and Center Target.
This machine uses a Flash Motor which I had to solder contacts onto since 3 of the 5 were completely gone.
The motor makes it so the values will light up 1000, 2000, 3000 (+ escape gate), 4000, or 5000 points.
Once the Target is hit or the ball goes in the kick-out hole it should give the points that are lit.
The issue I am having is the Top Kickout Hole only kicks out every other time a ball lands in it (or the Center Target is hit) instead of every time.
Also, it doesn’t always give the score that it should. Looks like the 4000 is lit and it may give 1000 or zero, never know what you may get.
There are 50 contact rivets on the Flash Motor and 5 fingers spinning around it, so when the Target or hole is hit, the motor stops and is supposed to score the points the light is on.
Since I was working on the Flash Motor, I am kind of concentrating on it, which may be the wrong place to look.
I did look at the Top Hole and Center Target relay and did adjust a couple of switches that looked iffy to me, but that didn’t fix the problem.
Depending on which light is lit when hit it looks like the following Score Motor switches are fired: 3C, 9B, 2B, 4D, and 5B.
Anybody have an idea where (else) I should focus my attention?
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
