I have a 1976 Bally Night Rider. This is my very first machine and purchased it to work on as a project with my youngest son. It didn't work at all in September and was in storage for 11 years, it was put up partially working. We have had many successes and actually had it about 95%, a couple of scoring issues with the drop-in target. The lighted arrows around the target will not move during play. They work great manually. Any thoughts?

I have included two pictures of two other questions. Question one, the back of the top of the machine had two wires that were broken off. I placed them where I think they go with temp clips and will solder back on once I get confirmation they are correct. The two wires in question are the red and green with the blue clips.

My three "mushroom" targets work with the top ring pushing by hand but not the bottom ring. All three bottom rings and the two bumper targets by the exit chutes do not work. They were working great. Turned on machine after playing earlier and they were dead. I am thinking it is the capacitor that I have attached to photo. It shows no continuity. I know very little but learning a lot Thanks to any suggestions in advance.

I need a couple of replacement screws for my Bally Night Rider em score reel leafs. They are one inch in length. Unable to locate anything locally. I will need to order but not sure of size.

I have spare screws to the reels, not sure what ones you are looking for. Can you add pic?

For future reference I believe that those are #3-48 screws.

I agree. I had one missing and ordered replacements through my local Fastenal store.

My local Ace hardware has an impressive fastener section. If they done have exactly what I need, they usually at least have a matching nut to help ID what thread and size the item is.

Is the solinoid fried? try bringing a yellow leed to the coil lug to see if it steps. But yea, driven off of both the 10pt and 100pt scoring relay
