Quoted from chuckwurt:

Searched this whole thread and didn’t see any mention of cardboards being remade. Just people asking for them. Haha

Maybe it was someone who restored one and started a separate thred. Sorry I thought i read it somewhere.

No worries. I’ll keep looking and report back if I find anything.

Jay, let us know if you find time to take this on.

Can someone take some pictures of the wiring of the coil that releases balls into the shooter lane and the disc transistor that is right next to said coil?

Thanks!

I had to replace the transistor on mine when I was fixing it up.

Thank you! I thought mine was bad too, but replaced it and still that coil doesn’t release balls. I can ground the power side of the coil and it will fire, so my understanding is the issue is further up the line.

It's such a silly design for this ball release. It requires 2 transistors. If you've changed the bottle cap transistor under the playfield and it still doesn't work you still need to check another transistor on the board. L14 goes to Q15. That ended up being the issue on mine as you can see from the picture it's blown. Hope this helps.

I’m going to guess this needs replaced. Haha

What sorta foam are you guys using for your playfield windows? My new Genesis had foam that was totally disintegrated so I cleaned it out but both types of weatherstripping I tried were problematic. The first was too soft and I couldn’t get the window level without the screws sticking up. The second was too stiff and the plastic was arching between the screws.

Steve Young with pbresource.com sells the correct foam washer/spacers.

Edit: here they are on the black hole page. Scroll down a little bit.
