Can someone please tell me what the adjustment switch in the cabinet are for?
The stapled notes on my game were gone, so I have no idea.

I think the rightmost is a connector for the 'sounder' solenoid, and one of the other connectors is probably the 3/5 ball switch... but the other ones?

You may want to look at the schematic (Here is an online version) and match up the wire colours.

Agree, but the colors on my wires have faded too much to make a good impression, and that wouldn't give me all the available options..

I'm sure a kind owner will provide you a photo of the adjustments label in due course (or approach some on pinball owners). I'd find it kinda fun to deduce them from the schematics based their wiring configuration and what they're connected to. I see at least 4 (two common) in the backbox too, Kick back adj and 10 times adj sound interesting

I didn't know there was a Ted Zale game mid run of Zipper Flipper machines.

While cleaning out my car..I found this. Exactly what I was looking for...

And thanks @iamdrunker... I also found that adjustment chart on ipdb.org.

Great find, so the more unusual adjustments must be those in the centre of backbox - are those labelled?

Btw, if you want a crisp print out of the score thresholds Inkochnito has reproduced them in this score cards file

I am a big fan of Inkochnito and found them through the dutch /flemidh flipperforum threads )
