    Bought this game this year to restore. Looking for detailed pictures inside the back box on the 100,000 and 10,000 unit at zero once game is 1st ball ready. Also a detailed picture of the "Start" relay wiring on the switch stack and adjacent relays. I'll be getting a schematic from PBR. This game was a major hacked prior, but running into score motor continuously running issues despite all switches to be correct throughout the machine.

    Seems to me the game is mostly going through a correct startup sequence though a picture illustrating these areas would greatly help me verify. especially those pesky jumper wires. This is my first light box scoring machine, but not my first rodeo with EM's.
    Thanks all, Steve

    gcpickers? That name rings a bell. Are you the same gcpickers who has that beautiful Gottlieb 1960 Melody Lane on ebay right now and who nicely gave me permission to show those pictures on the IPDB?

    I have a Lightning Ball. I recently added many pics of it to the IPDB but I will make specific close-ups for you if you please email me instead of posting here. I'm not always here.

    Well, for that matter, some say I'm not always there.

    Thanks everyone! Jay, I will email anyways for those pics to verify. I resolve the score motor issue using your pics on IPDB! Someone had a wire put in the wrong place on the reset bank. One problem solved but not 100% running though good progress. Now have a fresh PBR schematic for this hack cancer machine... Supprised this machine didn't burn down to include a house. Only have a few issues to look at. Even found a broken switch contact. Heavy duty one linking to either score motor or reset bank.
