Need some help for my newly renovated whoopee-64
In the middle captive 5-balls U-turn, there is a "popup post" that is supposed to prevent balls from getting from one side to the other...Theese 2 posts are always down/coil energized.
As soon as the game is off and the coil is unactive the posts smoth goes up by the help of the spring...as they should.

2 questions here:
What makes the coil being always energized?
What and when are the posts supposed to interact with the gameplay (the rules for how they are supposed to work)...as it is now its´only confusing. All the switches seems to work properly.

You need to get the schematic! John's Jukes has it: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/rec.games.pinball/et_SVInuh8M

Once you have it post a scan of the relevant area!

If those posts only rise when the game is off. The posts must prevent cheating. Preventing lifting the game and getting all of the balls on 1 side, before starting a game. Next question, what happens when the ball passes over the buttons just above the ball kickers? These roll over buttons do not have any scoring marked on the playfield near them.
