New to this forum and very excited to finally be part of the pinball club. Recently picked up a 1966 Chicago Coin Kicker. Its condition was unknown as the original owner had passed away. I have spent the last few weeks cleaning it up but now that I am finally trying to get it to play I have run into a few snags. I can plug it in and hit the left flipper and she lights up. I put in a dime and the reset relay starts firing and the counter is rotating in the base but it never stops. I cleaned the contacts for the top counters and if I set them at 9999 they all reset to 0 but the reset relay keeps firing. If I set them to 3333 it resets to 3030?? Idk if this would be the culptrit but i find it strange. regardless the reset relay just never stops. I set the ball counter to multiple locations with no luck. Any insite in what to look for would be appreciated.
I also found that my machine doesnt have the counter? Would this cause it to continuously loop and not play or do anything?
