Very cool! Zipper flippers and a bagatelle! Check out Bally's Spy Hunter from 1985 for a modern take on this playfield layout...

I found the zipper flippers on accident last night. I had the field up and was inspecting things when I noticed an oddly places solenoid assembly. I pressed around on it and all of a sudden the flippers closed up. Took me a little while to figure out that A) I didn't break anything, and B) how to unlatch them.
It's a long way off, but note the 2nd player score. The game is set to reset, but that 4 stays there. When the old owner powered it up the wheels just inside of the coin door kept spinning and never started a game. I think it is trying to reset that wheel, but can't, and therefor won't deploy the ball. A little research shows that the wheel might just have stiff grease from sitting, and I'm hoping that is the extent of the problem. That will get looked at in time though. I want to do as little playing until the field is fresh and clear coated, but I don't know how long I will be able to resist once the new rubbers, ball, and spring kit comes in.

Yes that is why it will not reset. All score reels must be at 0, amongst other things. Take it slow and get one section cleaned and working at a time. The beauty of EM's is that unless some one really went nuts adjusting things before you got it, cleaning of the steppers (gunk removal) and maybe filing a few contacts here and there and you will be up and running. BUY THE SCHEMATICS this is step #1 before you restore any EM. You have to be able to logically follow the power through the game. Also replace the fuse clips (Bally's are crap) before trying to troubleshoot as well!

Good luck the Bally EM's other than the model's from the 70's don't seem to pop up too often.
