Okay, if you look around the area where the Pin,s Jones Plug is (the
Jones plug you've been working on) there's 2 sets of switches that open
when the coffin (playfield cover) is opened, and those 2 sets closes
when the coffin is closed. One set closes the circuit to the Ball Lift
Motor (can't remember which set, but maybe has thicker wires because
the Ball Lift Motor is 110V), and the other set closes the circuit to the
Pin Relay. You'll what to make sure those switches are clean and closing
when the coffin is close. You can elegator clip them for testing.
United felt it was best for both the Pin Reset Relay and the Ball Lift
Motor didn't energize when the coffin was open, which certainly makes sense.
The 2 wires on the set of switches that go to the Pin Reset Relay are
Gray-Red and Gray-White. The Gray-White should be the one in the Pin
Deck,s Pig Tail. So if those switches are clean and making connection and
the Pin Reset Relay still doesn't energize during game play, you can jump
from those set of switches to the Gray-White on the Pin Reset Relay's coil
and if it works, then you'll know it's another bad wire (Gray-White)in the Pin
Deck's Pig Tail..
The good size rubber piece should be attached in the Ball Lift box and that's
what the ball first hits after rolling under the pins and leaving the alley. It
absorbs the punishment it would give hitting the Ball Lift Box's back door.
You'll see 5 holes where it bolts to with what I consider as very thin bolts,
thus I've found some of those bolts broken on some Bowling Alleys.
What I do is drill and make those holes 3/16", line up that rubber backstop,
(that thin rubber faces the front of the machine so that's what the ball would
hit first), then with a Phillip screw bit in a drill, fasten the backstop with 3" deck
screws. I have 3 or 4 Bowling Alleys out on location, but none set up here,
however I may be able to sneak a camera in a ball lift box from one in the barn
and take a pic of the rubber's backing to show exactly where it's mounted..
It's pretty important that it's remounted where it should be..
