Quoted from djblouw:

I was going through the packet inside my Lightning, and found two interesting items pertaining to the game.
The game card (warranty card?) that came with the machine:
[quoted image]
And an early edition manual. The game had test game reports in it too, so it must have been an early one before the manual was released.

Clear coated

QUESTION THOUGH: can anyone send me pictures of the metal guides/placement underneath the top right hand corner of the pf? That is, where you plunge and it goes to the upper pf. I'm not sure how to assemble the metal peices as I mistakenly forgot to take pictures..

jwalrath This does help thank you!

I now made a mistake. The end of stroke tabs on the left flipper were all touching together (not sure how) and when I flipped the left for the first time it blew the fuse, sparked the cabinet switch and smoke came off of the cabinet switch. I then unbent the tabs so they aren't touching, replaced the fuse and I flip and smoke came off the cabinet switch again. The cabinet switch looks white and black so im getting it replaced. The right flipper works amazing. New flipper rebuilds on all 4 of them. Was my mistake shorting them out.
So my theory,
I think I shorted the switch, or it was already f'd and I f'd it even harder cause the tabs were all shorted together, current goes back up to the switch and causes it to smoke and spark and blow fuse ?

Also, can someone send me a pic of the wiring for the lower left flipper coil wiring? Just want to triple check my work now. Thank you!
