Throwing this out there, might be a long shot. I got my machine running pretty good, figured out a few issues but am hung up on one. The left roto target scoring unit is not working. It appears to me that the problem is that L1 (scoring relay) is not latching. I can manually hold L1 in and the scoring unit rotates like it should. L1 picks when the roto target or any of the other three rollover switches are made but only advances the target one position. I have voltage thru J and H up to the L1 NO latching contact (what I would think is the latching contact, I could be wrong). Thanks, Kevin

Are you saying it's an electrical or a mechanical problem?

Electrical, in motor control we called it the latching or holding circuit that maintains voltage to the relay coil to keep it pulled in.
