Hello Pinsiders, I took a chance on a Skylab to add a pin with reels to my collection. Also I live in a rural area so it’s rare to find someone a few miles down the road selling a pin. The person I bought it from owned it for 20+ years and never really got it running so it stayed in the garage the whole time. For its age it doesn’t show too much wear.
It turns on but I can’t get it to start a game. I hear a few clicks in the back box and under the play field. When I trigger the coin mech nothing happens so I don’t think a credit is being added.
I added some pics. I’m going to give it a thorough inspection. I’ll be replacing all the lights with LEDs, new rubbers, and clean/wax the playfield.
Any tips would be appreciated I’ve only ever worked on solid state pins so this will be a learning experience for me.
