Is there a Conservative/Liberal adjustment on the Match Unit for a 1976 Gottlieb EM Sure Shot? I've played a bunch of games on this machine and haven't hit the match yet. I can't find any reference to such an adjustment in the manual or schematics, but I know I've seen this adjustment on other EM's. The Match Unit does work, it lands on all ten different spots, just none of my scores.

Thanks,

Alan

Make sure the board on your tens reel is good, solid connections and clean. That's where the match # comes from.

Thanks for the reply, but either I don't understand your answer or that wasn't quite the question I was asking. The Tens reel works great. The Match Unit works fine. All 10 possible numbers appear in various order. I was wondering if there was a manual adjustment to increase or decrease the times that you hit the Match.

It's been a while since I sold my Sure Shot and I don't have one to look at, but I don't believe Gottlieb had any adjustment for liberal or conservative with the mechanical match units of that game's era.

Quoted from Alan_L:

I thought you said initially that none of your numbers were hitting? The board on the 10s is what signals match; there is no lib/con adj.
