Fixing a Bronco for a friend of mine. Has been in his family for years.....it’s a mess! Wire hacks, etc.... I’ve made some progress but weird stuff is happening. I suspect some or all the units (bonus, player, etc)may be out of alignment. Would anyone be willing to send some pictures of the units in reset position as if a 1 player game? I’d like to see the positions and compare to this one. I appreciate the help.

Want to give some info on what's going on? We might be able to help.

Thanks. Can’t get the game to stay on player 1. The player unit should pulse 4 times after each ball drain. It’s only pulsing 2 times. Therefore going from player 1 to player 3 then back to player 1 etc.

If you haven't yet, make sure the contacts on the round bakelite discs on the player unit and the coin unit in the cabinet are cleaned well and shiny, and on the part that rotates over them that the the little spring-loaded fingers are aligned correctly over those contacts.

I currently have the head off of mine so I can easily pop off the back and take whatever photos you want. I'm new to EM's though, so not sure exactly what/where "units" you need, inside backbox? under playfield?

Thanks! Would you mind taking a picture of the coin unit at 0 position, as it would be at the start of a 1 player game? It’s the unit inside the cabinet near the chime box. I need a picture of both sides. Not sure mine is correct.

Hope these help, best I can do with all the other stuff in the way.
