Joined the club yesterday. Had to rebuild the headbox as it had been dropped at some point. Almost perfect backglass, missing all its reds. 1 loose insert, Mylar on the pf. Generally really good with a little ball swirl and wear around the bumper.
Missing its chime unit unfortunately
Rusted coin door and legs but beautiful mechanically.

Rust removed from legs and door. Cleaned up. Rollover for 4 won’t I light, will score points but stays lit. I’ve cleaned the rollover relay switch with no effect. Next steps? I don’t have a schematic and it’s my first em to trouble shoot through.

Thanks cactus. I’ll look at your suggestions. Schematic on order, just looking at what seems simple while I wait for it.

I adjusted the drop targets today on Abra Cadabra, just moving the mounts (occasional hangup) and for one game it was great. Since then though, i originally had the issue that 500 points (drop target value) was continually registering from the moment the ball was placed in the shooter lane. Assumed I had a drop target switch stuck, looked, no problems. Dropped the play field back down. 500 points no longer registers on the ball being placed into the shooter lane, but now roll-overs and drops don't register score. they register hits.

I don't have a schematic on hand to trace this through, but i am suspecting something may be incorrect with the Q relay as from memory its common between the drops and rollover registers for points.

All sling and pop bumper scoring is correct and registering.
Machine correctly re-zeros on new ball

An someone please post a photo of their upper centre Playfield with the plastics removed. What type of posts are under the back “Y” part? With my current post set I think the lower center is incorrect. I can’t place the ball guide plastic low enough for it to make ball contact.

Thanks. No incorrect split posts I can see on my Playfield. Will have to get one for the guide. Have correct post for the tip an d under the upper right plastic. Just seems to be the lower y guide that’s wrong

darcy did you have to enlarge the holes on the lower fugues plastic from pbr to fit over the split posts? Much smaller diameter holes than the original
