I brought this Supersonic back from the dead. I have one more display issue to resolve, but everything else is working great. Curse those Bally lamp (I'll call them bulbs from here on) sockets. I changed quite a few of them, but not all.
I keep having filaments break on bulbs close to the flippers and sling shots. Actually, I replaced the bulbs under the slings once already in 50 games and I just lost another one. Bonus 5000 has a new socket and I'm on my 3rd bulb. I'm currently using new #47 bulbs. I have several used older bulbs that I pulled out of the game and I tried a few of those. Same issue, filament breaks. The upper playfield bulbs have not had this issue.
I did not rebuild the flippers or sling shots, but disassembled and cleaned them all and I installed new coil sleeves. They seem powerful and strong and no missing pieces. I was thinking about installing LEDs eventually, but now I'm thinking about doing it sooner than later.
Anyone have any thoughts on this.
