I am seriously contemplating using MyPinballs Custom Bally/Stern Controller along with a Bally/Stern cabinet to get my Apocalypse Now Playfield running. But I need to ensure it is compatible. The parts are all Gottlieb but the wiring looks very Bally like. From the French schematics I have for Jeutel games, it seems their playfields were designed to use 12VAC for GI, 12VDC for controlled lamps, and 35VDC for the solenoids.
Bally/Sterns used 7.3VAC for GI, 5.4VDC for controlled lamps, and 43VDC for solenoids.
What would I need to do to convert the lamps to run on Bally power? Just change out the bulbs?
What would I need to knock down the power to the solenoids from 43v to 35vdc?
