Quoted from LargemouthAss:

No idea what to try next

Did you check the under playfield fuse?

Does the outhole switch close with a ball in it?

Double check all connectors in the head, not just the Alltek, all boards.

Quoted from LargemouthAss:

OK now when I turn it on I get all the lights but no sound.

Re-flow header pins on Solenoid Driver board? Losing sound when you had it before sounds (haha) like cold solder joints.

By "all the lights", do you mean G.I. and feature lights too?

Does the game reset the drop targets when you start a game?

Do the displays go into attract mode at power up?

Power Supply/Rectifier board: check fuses. Check voltage levels at Test Points 1, 2, 3 & 5. With a lot of play, you may have blown a bridge, especially if there were any little kids going flipflipflipflip.

I'm going to replace all my old-design 555 bulbs and sockets with the 44 bayonet design. But I want to make sure that I order the right sockets from PBR.

Should I use the 1 1/8' bracket #A-2916 for feature lamps and the flush mount #A-1363 for G.I, bulbs?

Also, do you just use ground braid for the daisy-chain voltage wire or something else? Thanks.

Quoted from KSUWildcatFan:

Assuming pcbs are still (now and forever) unobtainium, I'm assuming my best option forward to rid myself of the awful '81 wedge setup for controlled lights is to just swap for bayonets.. Yes? Any suggestions where would be best to buy enough in bulk, for a reasonable price?

Pinball Resource. I just ordered new bayonet sockets and wire. Sockets are part # A2916, .92 each, and the wire is on the Tools/Supplies tab under Material. Part # is MAT-PF-BRAID, .20 per foot. I ordered 20 feet, I have no idea how much I'll need.
You should also order one each of the A2913 and A2914 laydown sockets. The A2913 goes right underneath the upper drop target bank reset coil, and the A2914 goes under the star rollover on the left side.

Quoted from Lovef2k:

Are the pbr sockets single or double solder tabs? What gauge is the trace wire?

The A2916 has two tabs, you do not use the "B" tab (click on thumbnail pic). Wire gauge is the same as the old wire.

Quoted from phillyfan64:

Would A2914 from Pinball Resource be the best choice for GI lamps under the sling shots? Or maybe A2915 or A4762?

Oops, I forgot the G.I. sockets. For those, you'll want to use the A1363 flush mount socket. They have to be stapled in place.

I also found something when rebuilding the pops that I had not seen before. When you remove the bottom part of the bumper assembly from the coil, the metal and fiber yokes just fall off the end of the plunger. On my EBD the end of the plunger by the yokes has been pounded by what must have been the round end of a ball peen hammer and the metal and fiber yokes have been crushed together and will not come off the plunger. I had to find new plungers.

This looks like factory work. Has anyone else noticed this?
