1967 Derby Day has an animated backglass with horses in race. #6 horse will advance to the end when switches activate it. I can see the release relay pulse as the score motor attempts to release the #6 relay but something keeps the relay pulled in. Any thoughts?

Bet on #6.

Get schematic out and see what set of points all have to be closed to keep relay in, then check each of those what pulls them in. Work your way back and figure what is closed that should be open.

Get your mates around to bet on the horses. You will clean up!

I have and am still reading the schematic trying to figure with no luck so far. I see 4 possible switches and none of them seem to be the cause. Thanks for responding.

shootar, I think quickly they will suspect foul play and I will end up walking naked in some far away place!

I have just finished Hayburners and had the same experience with the #3 horse- turned out to be a weak pop bumper spring/ misaligned switch stack. It was so frustratating- the game would be normal with the playfield propped up but when I layed the field down- the weak spring allowed the to #3 to make and the horse just ran forward- dumb luck that I found it- but maybe your situation is similar-

Check #6 target SW and SW on #6 Re with White/ brown and White/green wires.

If either of these SW are stuck closed, house 6 will advance when the same SW is closed on both House 2 or 4. EG if target 6 SW is stuck closed, then when you hit target 2 or 4 then that house and house 6 will advance.

It was the switch on the score motor. thanks all for helping.

Was the switch staying closed?

It's nice to have the solution stated, it will help someone else in the future.

Sorry- I was just looking for clarification as to the issue with the switch at the score motor (not opening/ damaged switch/ broken contact-wire)

Having had a similar issue with an animated feature of a game- if the issue comes up again I'd have another place to look.

The switch just needed a little more tension when closed to make proper contact. Now working fine.

Hey there! Got a moment?
