Ok, my Gold Wings is coming along, fixed the switch issues and the battery issue. Whew. Here are the last issues I have discovered:
1) Occasionally the game will not track balls correctly. Every couple of games if I activate multi-ball the game will end the "turn" when the first ball drains; the flippers go dead while the bonus point are awarded and the second ball drains as well. Sometimes I will lock a ball in the kickout hole and then play the next ball fine. When that ball drains it will sit there in the drain and not kick to the through. I have checked the switch in the kickout hole and it seems to be good. I will play three or four games fine and then have an issue. Argh.
2) What's the story with the loop in the upper left corner. The one is my machine is pretty beat up, it looks like its missing the side screw tabs so it shifts and becomes unusable. I am going to order a pair of replacement sides from PBR, any tricks to assembly to get it working 100%?
3) Has anyone made reproductions of the aircraft carrier plastic? Yikes, is mine beat up!
