It's on free play but it would be fun to route .. This thing plays as fast as a modern game .
Also is this unit the credit counter?

Does anyone have a CDI (CC) score reel assembly. Actually I need the arm that the plunger attaches to, as well as the plunger and coil, but I'll take the entire assembly if that's easier. I also need an additional 24-700X coil.

Oh, I almost forgot. I also need a ball kicker coil, plunger & link. I'm not sure of the coil #.

TIA

#1704 4 years ago

Yup, that's the newer style credit counter (even though they went back to the old metal reel near the end).

As I recall, the "shutter" steps CW to show a higher number (add credit). The number wheel behind steps CCW showing a lower number. A "0" when lit, indicates 10 and can count up to 19 if the limit screw is set that high.

Old grease causes them to stick and not step smoothly. Take plenty of pictures as you disassemble it to clean as often, people ask for photos to figure out how to put it back together.

#1705 4 years ago

Great thanks for the info , I needed a project for tonight and will post pics of the disassembly..

As for the coin door parts? Thanks pinhead52 but it looks like I'm going to need much more than you might think image.jpeg

#1706 4 years ago

I have some CC PARTS let me look . I have score reels and probably the ball kicker & coil. 25$ for everything including shipping . I'll look at my box o' chit and update . Would gladly trade plus cash for a 10 cents coin entry plate like on Melody & Cowpoke

Let me know, I may have the coin entry plate. I'll check too.

oops, I forgot, I also need a small relay coil, I'm not sure of the size, but it's for a small relay on the motor board. I'm sure just about any would work.

1974DeltaQueen,

Sorry, no luck on the entry plate. I do have one with two slots 5¢ / 25¢. It's in pretty rough shape.

Quoted from bflagg:

Trying to rebuild a match unit on a Sonic. It's identical to the Williams little match unit. Mine is corroded and doesn't want to come apart, may have to break it to get it apart and functioning.
Anyone have these parts?
A-7595 - 10 step shaft with alternator cog
3B-7364 plastic discs
A-7614 right contact
A-7615 left contact
20a-9048 retaining clips.
Looks like this one.image.jpg

Got it apart without breaking it. Just need the retaining clips.

#1714 4 years ago

Drop,

Yeah really after the 10cent shoot PBR reproduction ones are 44$ give or take . I know I got a complete reel the kicker and coil I'll dig around . I need a nice coin door too, hey asking is free

#1715 4 years ago

No harm in asking. I do have a coin door, but It's one which I replaced, so I wouldn't call it exactly "nice"

PM me when you get a chance.

BTW, the other coil is a K28-1200

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

Hi Parts Thread,

Still trying to locate a Williams Chime Box, or possibly some alternate suggestions on how to fix mine.

I'm waiting on a parts order to fix my chime unit. (My fault for delaying the order, not a delayed order from long ago.) Anyhow, despite being able to order the majority of the parts, I can't find a supplier for the main unit, which has a broken brackety thing:

IMG_9990a.jpg

...and here's a highlight of the busted part:

IMG_9990b.jpg

So, basically, the top done got broke off, and now it won't hold the wire coat-hanger thing in place to secure the chime. So, whenever something scores 100 points, it kinda flops around inside the cab (a behavior I'm trying to remedy).

Now for a couple close-ups:

IMG_9991.jpg

Here's a look from the other side:

IMG_9993.jpg

Once disassembled, I realized it was part of the whole unit. Not simply a replaceable part. So, I've been trying to figure out a way to fix this, as no one seems to have a spare chime box to part-out (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/the-em-seeking-parts-thread/page/34#post-2804649)

IMG_9997.jpg

Just for comparison, here's what the unbroken side looks like.

IMG_9995.jpg

Alright, fellas, any ideas for fix-it-try or does someone possibly have a Williams 3-chime unit laying around?

Thanks, as always!
-Ryan

Hey Ryan, I had a similar problem to what you have and while it's not the prettiest solution, I took an "L" bracket and bolted it to the side of the chime box with the other part of the "L" being slight above the top of the metal chime. This allowed it to still vibrate but not be shot off of the box every time the coil fired. I had the game for quite a while without any issues. Unfortunately, I no longer own the game so I can't show you what it looks like but hopefully you get the idea.

Obviously, repairing the metal would be the way to go but I don't have the metallurgy skills to do it so I did the best I could with what I had.

Sounds like a good prospect for you Ryan. If anything you can put together a unit from yours and the eBay one if necessary.

(BTW, I notice that two of your chime bars are broken at the back. The ends are broken off at the rear mounting hole.)

Oh my god, yes! Please! I'll be happy to work out details with you via PM, but before we go that route, let me post a couple more pix here (since we can't via PM).

Here's my Swinger chime unit (without a tub and nylon-tipped plungers bonking the chimes in the middle BETWEEN the nubby bits):

...while THIS is my Jubliee chime unit (with a tub and nylon-tipped plungers bonking the chimes on the outter edge BEYOND the nubby bit):

I need a chime unit for SWINGER (the unit WITHOUT a tub and coils in the middle).

*Fingers crossed you have the anti-tub variety*

Many-many thanks, Barry!!!

#1727 4 years ago

Ryan, both of mine have the tub. Upon examination the tub can be removed and the coil brackets can be removed and moved to the inside which looks like it would be the same. I can change it around and take a pic if it helps.

It looks like the tub was removed and the coils relocated to compensate for the broken chime bars. Your Jubilee has the correct parts in the correct place.

Actually you need the one with the tub as others have stated that your unit was a make shift to accommodate your broken parts.

#1733 4 years ago
Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Looks like that's the tub variety.

I'm guessing these are not interchangeable...but I'm still sort of wet behind the ears with this EM tech stuff, so I'm happy to be educated otherwise.

Quoted from egyptrus:

I took an "L" bracket and bolted it to the side of the chime box with the other part of the "L" being slight above the top of the metal chime.

Hi egyptrus,

Thanks a bunch for CHIMING-IN here and offering a solution. Pardon my ignorance, as I mentioned...

Quoted from RyanClaytor:

...I'm still sort of wet behind the ears with this EM tech stuff...

...and I'm not even sure what an L-Bracket is. I looked it up and found stuff like this:

L-Bracket.jpg

Sooo...I'm kinda struggling to see how this might save me.

Alright, so again with the...

Quoted from RyanClaytor:

...I'm still sort of wet behind the ears with this EM tech stuff...

...a "molten wire blobber" is definitely not in my toolbox. Should it be?

Quoted from girloveswaffles:

Sounds like a good prospect for you Ryan. If anything you can put together a unit from yours and the eBay one if necessary.

If Barry's version doesn't pan-out, I might start trying to figure out if this tub version could retrofit my non-tub version.

#1735 4 years ago

Another word for a molten wire blobber is a wire feed welder.

In the right hands it can fix the damage to your chime unit of you have the right friend.

If not, finding a replacement in acceptable condition is also an acceptable, and probably more accessible solution.

Good luck with what appears to have surfaced with the replacement chime unit. Don't part with the old one in case the need arises again and repairing that one is a viable solution.

#1736 4 years ago

You've correctly identified an "L" bracket as that's what I used. I just realized that you don't have a tub, which makes this solution a bit tougher to use. In mine, I had the tub, and was able to drill a small hole in the tub to but a bolt through and then put a nut on the other side. The top part of the bracket was over the top of the chime, effectively holding it down. I left a bit of space between the chime and the bracket so it could vibrate.

In your case, because you just have the support bracket, using an L bracket would be a bit tougher as you'd have to drill into the bracket. I still think it could work though if you could drill into the bracket and have the chime sit where it should. The other end of the L bracket would then be just above the broken mount. This would stop the chime from being able to come off the broken mount that you have.

What I'm not sure is if you'd have enough clearance between the metal bracket and the top of the chime. I really wish I still had the game that I put this fix into as a picture would definitely help.

Hopefully, you'll be able to find the parts you need to fix it.

Just upgrade to the nice Chrome one. Same part. Williams just cheapened out for a couple of years there in the 70's. Went back to metal since the plastic ones would break.

In my mind they did this pretty much throughout, at least during the EM period.

Remember Harry Williams' motto: "There is no substitute for undercutting Gottlieb".

Sorry, had a weak moment... I'm okay now.

#1745 4 years ago

Thanks for your input guys! I'm intending to replace the gray plastic one on my Full House with chrome, but I think the pink would look good on the Doozie. So, Ryan - I'm definitely interested!

Quoted from oldtowner:

Great, happy to help. Here's what I've got.

Front is in tact:

IMG_8704.JPG

...but one of the screw cylinder things on the back broke off:

IMG_8726.JPG

You can see, the piece has a relatively clean break (fits back in the same place), so could possibly be glued/epoxy'd back into place:

IMG_8705.JPG

Anyhow, it's yours if you want it. Just say the word.

#1747 4 years ago

There is enough "meat" there to use a slightly longer screw and still get 3 in there. Just start the thread with a self cutting screw first since the longer one you buy may not be self cutting.
