I’m waiting on a manual but I’m bringing back a haunted house from the dead its obviously sat for a very long time. Fixed all the boot issues, switch issues, sound issues. I’m now down to 2 weak coils. The trough coil and the lower playfield vuk. There may be others but all flippers, pop bumpers, kickers all work. You can hear those 2 coils try to fire but very weak. I don’t have a wiring diagram but I’m thinking one of the bridge rectifiers may be an issue.

Are all the normal talked about ground mods done? Info is everywhere on what should get done.
Check resistance on coils. Feel for how plunger slides thru sleeve, any binding? Time for new sleeve?
Could be time to change out the capacitor and consider changing out the bridge rectifier while your there.

Yea I’m pretty familiar with these. Someone was kind enough to send me some shots of the manual. And took me no time to track down the issues. It’s all playing with no issues. Time to shop and finish with leds.
