mopar A few of those things I've cleaned/replaced over the years.
The switches in the outhole and ball index relay have been cleaned up and adjusted.
The Ball Index Relay also got a new coil last year. Since it's right up front I've been able to watch it close when the ball rolls over that shooter lane switch and it energizes every time.
For a while I thought it was the ball index because if I put a piece of tape on the shooter lane rollover switch to hold it closed during play the ball count works every time. Makes me think the ball index is releasing too early, but I don't think it's a problem with the relay itself. Not sure.
I looked at D3 and B2 a while back, but these are cleaned and adjusted and seem to work as intended. D3 also tends to make a visible spark when it closes.
I'm going to go back and check two of the things you mentioned more thoroughly; the 100-900 relay and the Extra Ball Relay. I just took a look at the extra ball relay it and it's still a little cruddy. I'll clean it again and might replace that coil too. Thanks a ton bud and enjoy the holiday weekend.

I’m looking for a replacement goalie on a 1969 Chicago Coin Slap Shot head-to-head. Anyone got one laying around?

Has anyone had any luck matching paints on Chicago coins? I have a hi-score pool that I’ve been trying to match the gold/yellow on for 2 weeks. Tough color I guess but I see it in a lot of playfields in this thread. Curious if anyone’s had success and what paint they are using.

I have mixed colors for many machines including at least 2 CC machines.
I use all kinds of paint. I have even mixed rattle can paints in a plastic cup to get a touch up color i need.
Are you looking to touch that up or repaint that entire area?

#656 6 days ago

I love my Chicago coin top ten but sadly it’s been down for two months. It won’t recycle a new game when you hit the start button and won’t kick out a ball. If any one has any suggestions by looking at the schematic I’d love to hear suggestions!

Are the score reels all at zero?

Yes they are.

When you hit the Start Button, does the Coin Relay energize? If not, if you manually activate the
Coin Relay, does the Start Relay energize and start a game?

Try advancing a score reel manually and see if it returns to zero and starts a game.

I sold a Sound Stage that worked fine. Buyer brought it home and played it. He started a game, tilted it and the shut it off.
It did the same thing : lit up but would not start a game. I advanced the score reel to re- intiate start sequence and it worked fine.

I’ve been using Americana acrylics. I’ll get the exact colors in the morning that I am mixing. I am thinking about spraying the entire board Now though because I’ve been unsuccessful filling. What’s happening with the acrylics is when I get a close match, I am trying to wipe off everything but the scratches and it always leaves a residue. I can’t get enough of the remaining paint off and it dries too dark. Definitely not trying for perfection here.

I haven’t tried rattle cans yet. Maybe I’ll run over to Home Depot tomorrow and take a look at what colors they have.

The color is probably something that was popular 50 years ago, but today you see it nowhere.

When I push the start button nothing happens. How do you manually activate the coin relay?

Also the games right now at zero.

Quoted from Gnrwarkfc:

Under the playfield on the bottom board, should be the Coin Relay. Hopefully the labels are
still there. If you push that relay in with your finger, is what I meant by manually activate.
You may get lucky and have a quick fix by stepping up the credit unit that's inside the head.
You'll want to push in (a few times) the larger coil plunder of the two. This will make contacts
touch which will complete the circuit to the start button. Because it worked fine for so long,
you wouldn't think that that's the problem, but worth a try..

Anyone looking for a Backglass? There's one posted on CL ventura.craigslist.org link

Not mine and no idea as to the seller but figured would share!

GNRWARKFC:i have sprayed rattle cans into a plastic cup and mixed the to get the color i am looking for. Its hit or miss. Its also more pricey than americana at 4 to 5 bucks a can. If you are touching up ,then buy the headset magnifiers and ONLY brush into the cracks. Rattle can paint dries fast and hard. If you get the paint outside the valley, it is more noticable if your mix is not exact.
If you go for the total spray of area you can be less fussy on matching color since 2 same games side by side will no longer have the same colors or look like they did when they were new.
Buy a roll of low tack frisket from blick and cut out the shapes you want to mask with an exacto knife.

Sky Rider - to wax or not to wax . . .

A recent visit to Pep Boys (headlights out, and you need to field strip the front end of the Chevy Mailbu to replace 'em) resulted in buying a bottle of Mother's carnauba wax, need to schedule a wax / cleaning night. No question about my Duotron and Domino - wood playfields that need some protection. But Sky Rider seems to have some sort of clear coating on the playfield (which other than some sketchy inserts is gorgeous) and wondering if it might have been coated or something (from the factory or aftewwards) in a way that wax is either not needed or not advised.

Or just wax away, can't hurt?

I joined the Chicago Coin Club last fall when I picked up a rough 1940 Sports Parade. I'm finally digging into it now. Wish me luck.
Here's the restoration thread I started today: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sport-parade-restoration#post-5724079

Hm, start by adding an "s" to "Sport Parade"?

Sorry, believe me it's a curse to always notice these things.

Your game looks pretty good to start with, should be beautiful when finished!

I pointed out that extra "s" to the Pinside admin but they couldn't remove it. For comparison, IPDB included the hyphen in their listing. I haven't seen it spelled with the hyphen anywhere except the backglass. The game got a full page in R. Bueschel's Pinball 1 (p.194). Anyone have a schematic for this game? Nothing at IPDB or PBR.
