couldnt resist bringing home a stray pin that needed a home. I'm reading Clay's site (awesome) for help. I want to check fuses, but can't find a reference to tell what size fuses should be where. Any help is appreciated.
Also, the backbox lights worked before, but aren't now. Fuse?

I really wanted to take off the ball count unit and clean the Bakelite contacts, but there are a few other wiring things there keeping me from pulling it out.

I have two EMs, and I want to learn. Any help is appreciated.

Something not plugged in. Broken wire.

Just follow clays guide. Do a systematic repair. It probably all needs doing anyway
Get a schematic from PBR

Looks like the full manual, including schematic is on IPDB.org
Good luck!

First thing I would do is clean all the Jones plugs. Then, if it works, check out all the functions, make a list of any feature not working. Then go through it top to bottom.
IPDB does have the manual & schematic in sections. Unless you can stitch & print it, get one from PBR, they're easier to read on one sheet of paper.

The schematic shows all of the fuses, it is at the end of the manual on ipdb.org.

+1... when i need to use the schematic at the same time i'm working on the machine, i tape it up to the wall next to me so i can easily refer to it... having it all on one big sheet makes it much easier...

Thanks, I'll dive in

No back glass lights turned out to be the connectors not fully seated. Cake! Fuses were correct and good except one. Bad flipper replaced, but now it stutters. I'll go see what the Vid guide has to say about that. Interesting flippers too, the kind where the bat has a metal underneath (is that copper or brass?) Game plays and is fun. Match unit has something wrong too. Good progress, gotta keep going.

Pick up the top DVDs 1 & 2. Both cover EM repair.

I've got #1. Good stuff with Shaggy and Norm. I've been having fun playing Spanish Eyes tonight. But, there is still much to do.

Can I replace these flippers that have the soft pawl with anything else, or is it best to stick with the same type? I have a cracked plastic cap. I undid the screw to see how the cap and pawl came apart, but they're on pretty tight and I didn't want to force them. Is there an explanation of these anywhere?
