I was in the game business from 73 to the 90's. I presently live in the Philippines where the city I live in does not have any pinball machines but I came across one from a friend of mine. Went over there today to see this Alvin G Pistol Poker. Not in bad condition. I fixed most of the issues that was wrong with the game. Not starting, Ball kicker plunger was not working, etc etc. My problem is all three flippers are dead. The game is from the Netherlands and was transported over here to the Philippines Never worked on a Alvin G machine. Cleaned the contacts, checked wiring and checked every fuse in the head of the game on the side as well as the fuses on the board and with Williams and Bally the games have a fuse under the play field but this game I did not see a fuse. Is this possible a board issue? I went thru the tests for coils and only ones that did not work is the flipper relay. Need help to resolve this issue. Thank you, Fred

Pistol Poker issue. Game stopped advancing when you get the shot in the hole in the middle and now does not even say "Ready-Aim-Fire" or even use the flippers to advance what you want to put it at on the back box by selecting a suit. Ball does shoot out to the top of the playfield. Also when making a suit like a pair of Jacks, or Queens or Ace and Jack, etc it will not advance to another suit as stays in that position. One more issue is the left Slingshot does not work. Contacts are fine and in test mode the coil works. All these issues stopped working at the same time. Help please as I am stumped. I did change the CPU, Matrix board as well as the power supply with extra boards but had to change some Roms to the other boards. Any suggestions? Thank you.
