Just got my first EM!!! Thanks CK1Sports!

Anyways just a couple questions. I bought a 1974 Capt Card.

1) The Sticker showing what my Main Line Fuse Voltage and amperage is ripped, underneath the PF towards the rear. I can read the others, but I wanted to just double check them all (found 1 wrong) What is the main voltage fuse rating supposed to be?

2) I was changing out coil sleeves and noticed the coil stops look like nothing I have seen before. Can you use modern coil stops or are the old style EM coil stops the only ones you can use?

3) If any of you EM vets have any tips please share!!

CC is one of the best - one of the few games that for me gets better over time.

Those are normal. Can get new ones from pbr but think they look ok.

If it isn't broke, don't fix it...EM's are "sensitive"

Those coil stops are fine. But if you did replace them, should use the same style Gottlieb ones (available from PBR).

The main fuse to the transformer is going to be a 5A slo-blo (can see this on the bottom of the schematic, if the label on the bottom board is unreadable).

I just got game and don't have schematic. Gottlieb doesn't want to join the information age So I am looking for a copy.

Pinball Resource will have the schematic. They're not available online.
