I've done a quick read the PINBALL Repair EM guide and will start making my way through the recommended steps there, but I wanted to log my issues and progess.
Gottlieb Super Score is my first EM. I bought it with the head removed and had it that way until yesterday when I got to spend a little time assembling it and trying to figure out how it works.
Once plugged in, the game powers on when I push the center button on the coin door.
A couple issues that I've fixed so far:
Right flippers not working - Coil lost its plunger/link down in the cabinet.
Two of the pop bumbers on the same relay were locking on. This was caused by one of the switches not opening when the pop-bumper was active. I also noticed a switch in the relay that appeared to be purposefully bent back such that it wouldn't make contact. I went ahead and gapped it properly so that it would make contact when the relay is active.
Some remaining issues:
-The 2 switches in the outlanes on the right don't seem to be registering.
-P1 10 point reel does not spin, but instead seems to get applied to P2 10 reel. I'm not up to speed on the workings of reels, but if I keep hitting a 1 point switch all the way up to 10, the 1 point reel resets to 0, but nothing happens with 10 - not even P2 10 increasing. Advancing P2 10 all the way up does nothing to P2 100. When I push the button on the center of the coin door, the game resets (I think), a ball is ejected, and P2 ends up with points in the 10 slot.
-I'm not sure about the status of the lights that I think indicate the ball in play. As it is, I don't think the game ever ends. It keeps ejecting a new ball when drained, and it always seems to be P1, though I'm not sure at the moment what indicates the active player and the ball in play.
This what I'm noticing so far. I'll document progress when I get a chance.
Other than those issues, pf lights seem to be working correctly, and I'm happy to see that the roulette wheel seems to be functioning properly, too.
I still need to clean the plugs which I gather can clear up a lot of issues, so that probably needs to be a next step.
