Next I will address the Amber. This is what I had in my machine.
Looks just like it doesn't it. Maybe it was a Mod.
When I got this machine a few years ago, I was able to find a new on from a place in Australia.
everything was pretty dingy.
Took it all apart to clean it up.
Ran in to another interesting wiring issue. Kind of like the switch modification in the scoop, I am not sure if this has been modified or if the lights are from another machine. The sockets are all cleaned up but you can see that there is a second wire on all four tabs. It looks like they were daisy chained at some point. This made look at the wiring diagrams to see if I was missing something but I believe I have everything.
I looked at the bottom of the playfield. The wires leading to the upper playfield lights run through a distribution block like the pop bumpers. This makes me wonder if there are versions of the game that have a daisy chain and no distribution block under the playfield and ones that have this. Or this could be just something someone did to my machine. Curious if you guys have different wiring. This block is normally screwed to the playfield but I took it off to get a better picture.
The new amber block just about gave me a heart attack. I think the block is made out of a harder material than the original. When I tried to put a screw into the pre-drilled holes, I could hear it cracking. I immediately stopped. I couldn't use a smaller screw because it wouldn't bite. I drilled the hole out a little more and then held my breath and tried the screw again and it worked. If this would not have worked, I would have had to just drill a hole all the way through and deal with it so I'm glad it worked.
One thing I hat about the Amber block is the bracket that holds it sis wider than the amber. I think this just looks sloppy.
I marked the edges so I could cut the vertical part off.
I got sockets riveted back on to the bracket and connectors added.
I put the pins in a configuration where they can not be plugged into the wrong one.
Finished and ready to mount. You will still be able to see the flat part of the mounting bracket but at least you wont see the ugly vertical part of the bracket.
