I've brought back both Williams, and Bally games before - (The older last 70s through late 80s)
But this time I have a Circus -- and I'm trying to bring back to life as well... The woman SAID they were playing it right up until they unplugged, and then used MASKING TAPE directly onto the contacts faces to tell them how they should re-attach the cables once they decided to put it back together. Unfortunately though, even after getting the goop off the boards, when they're plugged back in the game refuses to boot. As a matter a fact, I believe it's knocker coil is somehow locked on.
So. Until I too find a book for this sucker,, I'm a little bit at a loss. I have the Gottlieb repair wiki, and a couple of other sources for "fixit" manuals for Gottlieb.
Does anyone know if the edge connector's pins are crimped with the same tool used to crimp the .10s and .156s? I got the standard tool from GPE.
