    Every now and then my River Boat would just go straight to tilt mode and end the game while playing. I was at my wits end trying to find the problem when I discovered this. See pic. A screw broke off a part on the playfield and landed perfectly into the gear box of the score motor, which, back then was not covered. So every now and then it would bobble around and jam the score motor causing the tilt. Just thought I would share showing some of the crazy things that can cause major problems.

    Wow, that is wild. Reminds me of O-dins Fun park that came to him with a set of keys in the switch stacks.

    I can almost remember that too.

    Is that gear shaft bent? Or just the angle?

    it is amazing the kind of stuff that can screw up a perfectly running game, great post!

    Just the angle, there is a spring on the shaft.
