I have a Williams super flite. The machine is working reasonably well, however the outhole relay won’t close long enough (it does pulse) to trigger the resets, ball kicker.......

The switch’s are clean, so I’m looking for ideas. Could it be that I need a new coil for the outhole relay?

You need to look at the schematic to see what makes the outhole relay drop out after it is energized. Check switch 5-B on the score motor, looks like that should keep it energized for most of a score motor rotation (it should be a normally closed switch).

Ok, I thought the score motors’ pulse was what activated and deactivated the outhole relay. So there is a deactivating switch too?

What exactly is the problem? Why do you think you have an outhole relay issue?

Quoted from Flyboybuster:

Switch 6-B will activate the relay once the bonus hits zero. Then it stays energized until switch 5-B opens. So yes there is one pulse to activate it and one to deactivate.

You can put the score motor into service mode and manually turn it to check correct operation.

Dr, you nailed it! it was the score motor switch not being correctly positioned.

How about another problem.....the game almost always goes into a 2 player game from one start button push? Not always, but most of the time
