The parts shelf is empty, and the hardware in the cup is all gone. So it looks like we are ready to put the playfield back in. Hooking up the jones plugs and plugging it in went well enough.
Press start. The score motor spins and things click. Scores reset to zero and a ball pops out. The lights flicker. Not just the insert or GI, but both groups at the same time. Flippers work though, so let’s give it a go.
Playing a few games over the course of 30 minutes the lights flickered a lot, so I’ll check out the condition of the fuse holder since I’m guessing they are all on the same fuse. A few switches didn’t register, while some came around after a little use.
The bell works, normally. The could gets hot though, as if it’s always on, but it can’t be. Maybe it’s just in most of the time and when it is told to fire it lets go and locks back on again, seeming to work.
I’m pretty excited to be at this stage. This has been a very long term project and it’s nice to at least have the art part done and the parts no longer spewed over a shelf. The little fixes are probably 50/50 as to if I will have to seek help. The things common to SS games will be fine. EM specific stuff is going to need to be researched.
