Quoted from gutz:

Thanks for the input. I will hook it back up and watch it function to better understand it. I've got all the dogs de gummed, so it should behave now. It must do a (spring) release step and wind step during each revolution?

Here's a short video of mine while I was bench testing it.

Quoted from SilverLiningMan:

Those All-American Quarterback games are sweet — thanks for posting! I love the running man action, and imagine that kids back in ‘49 must have been pretty bedazzled by that.
I’ve got a nice example of AAQ’s baseball brother from that year, the ‘49 Star Series. Playfield is pristine, and it has the original plate glass with screened instructions. Gameplay is classic Williams pitch-and-bat. I believe it’s the second game Williams made with the vertical running man unit circling the bases on the backglass.
Mr. Red bobblehead topper nods his approval...even when I hit a pop-up with the bases loaded...

Question - on your Star Series - how many balls does your machine have? Mine has two...yea, yea, yeah...I can hear it now..lol...but really, sometimes you have to wait for the 2nd ball to complete the full return, before it will pitch again...so wondering if there should be 3 to 5 in there? Or will that lock it up with too much weight? (I also notice, these are smaller than the std pinball 1 1/16" - what size are these supposed to be?

You bet. Mine is loaded with 5 balls, 15/16” in diameter. I tried some rapid fire pitching tonight and couldn’t get it to shoot blanks unless there were 3 or 4 “foul balls” rolling around on the playfield. Also thought you might enjoy these score cards, I especially like the Bush League-to-Major League ranking system...let me know if you’d like me to scan any of these for you. Love the script on the old operator envelope too.

Received my order from Marco’s and what a difference. It’s like a whole new game. No waiting at all! Wow! Something so small. Lol I can tali’s fire pitch now too! I do notice , if the base runners are moving the bat is disengaged (so I guess a squeeze play is out of the question ?). Lol

But thanks again! Big improvement having enough balls ! Why hang with 2 when 5 does so much better! Ha!

Very nice! Now, 5 balls would be a squeeze play indeed...

Nice!, How do you win over 100 replays?

#515 1 day ago

Hey Jeremy
Hope all’s well.

Well, there isn’t a magic shot to make, so you’d have to play consistently great over many games. You get 1 credit for a score of 50 runs, and up to 8 credits with a score of 160 runs.
The highest I’ve had was 99 runs, I think, which got me 4 credits.
I’m not so sure that 3rd credit wheel was really needed. ??

The play field is nice. Just needs a little cleaning. I was lazy and didn’t want to move the game next to it to lift the coffin lid. Sorry for the bad photo.
