I just got one of these running for a friend a few months back. The root of all it's problems were related to the AX relay. It was a real fussy one too.

Quoted from WhiskeyTango:

Any tip, tricks or pointers?

You know I didn't have a schematic to work with. I usually like the shotgun approach. Go through clean and adjust everything properly and it should work. That usually gets you close but you also discover things with that strategy. I found a disconnected wire on the AX and thought that would do it but there was more going on. I seem to remember the "O" relay and the AX being a combined problem with my start sequence.

What helped me most was reading a couple troubleshooting posts related to the start-up sequence for 300 on RGP. I think someone had a similar problem as I did. Posted by the late great Al Garber if I remember correctly.

Guys willing to help with a schematic can usually get you narrowed down to specific areas to focus on. That helps a lot if you want to fast-track it.

The game is "motoring out" as they call it. Fighting to complete the startup sequence but failing some where. Check out the start-up sequence on Clay's site for 1975 and later Gottlieb.

These are the kind of things you discover when you go through them completely. All it takes is one of those types of issues to kill a game. Then they sit in some homeowners basement unplayed for 10 years and everything gets gummed up compounding the problem(s).
