Hey guys. I'm excited to be apart of the club. I bought my BH a month and a half ago and am now just getting around to the guts of it. Boy what a beast. First off the BH I bought was suppose to be in good working condition, it even a had a video of game play. Shame on me for taking someone's word as it was all ready to go when I went to pick it up. Got it home and set it up for a good nights playing, low and behold some things didn't work.
Upper drops didn't reset, spinning disc motor was loud as hell, center pop didn't pop, lower playfield tube kicker didn't kick, lower 4 bank drop doesn't reset, lower captive hole doesn't kick and the lower captive hole 3 arrow lights don't light up. Last time I will ever buy without seeing it in person.
Anyway I have fixed most things on the upper. It had a couple blown fuses and also the center pop spoon switch was loose and needed tightened.
The lower PF I haven't made any progress yet. The tube kicker I'm pretty sure is the transistor so I have a couple of those on order, but haven't figured out the captive hole, 4 bank drop reset and the three lights.
System 80s are definitely different. Any input or help is much appreciated on trouble shooting the last few issues. Thanks
