Just finished putting this game back together, this restore because of the playfield rework took nearly 8 months. I learned a lot about Gottlieb wedge heads that will help with my next bunch of restores as they are all Gottlieb's. The bronze electroplate finish or whatever it is is really cool. You can't throw it all in the tumbler at once as it damages so a small load over time and it comes out great. I polish it then to keep it looking good for a year or so.
The switch contacts had some larger contacts, I guess are for frequent or larger current being passed. I did not notice this on the other Bally bingo and various Williams pin restores. During start up I had some issues as up to now a good clean and dremel wire brushing as always been sufficient unless the contacts were worn too much. The large contacts had pitting and these needed filing a lot so they made a good contact. All the bumpers set the N relay berserk until I fixed their relay contacts.
The Slick chick has two bank relays one on the bottom relay board and one on the playfield. The bottom relay board bank is really cool as it has a frame that allows the unit to be swiveled to a good inspection position without being removed from the game. Never seen that before.
The game after tweaking the bumper contacts is quite lively as long as you are prepared to nudge, this games needs to be given a workout. The flippers are strong now with new switches and they need to be to get the ball back up top, It is also very tough game for me as I am an average player. I have set it to the easiest settings and lowered the tilt also. That said I was able to score a 800+ score. I asked my wife to have a turn and she immediately made a 1152 score on here second try, said it was good game and went back to the kitchen I can't beat her score yet, as I say its a tough game.
I think this game it is going to be staying here for a long time.
Tiny issue on one bumper is not setting off the bell and the match did not give a replay when made but I may not have turned it on. This is the most solid playing game so far after one of my total ground up restores. As I say its a blast!
