Greetings from Australia!
I hope you all don’t mind me crashing this party but I am stoked to find a thread dedicated to my latest acquisition, a mighty Williams “Fire!”
I’ve initially come across a couple of switch hassles and I’m hoping that someone from the Fire! family can assist.
Primarily, I noticed that the left ball lock was spitting out more than one ball every now
and then and causing a two ball multiball to occur. On closer investigation I discovered that a wire form is missing.
If I can’t find the actual wire form I’m thinking I can bend my own. I’m having trouble finding any pics to show what shape it should be but I think it will act as a gate to stop more than one ball from being ejected(?). There also appears to be a dummy switch (that isn’t wired up and doesn’t have contacts) under the playfield that I’m assuming simply acts like a spring to reset the wire form after the ball rolls over it....
I’ve attached some pics of the underside of my game and I also found an online image of a game that has the wire form in place (ringed in red).
I’m also struggling to find a replacement for the left spinner switch SW-1A-171 that has no contacts They seem a bit hard to find.....
So in summary:
Does anyone own a Fire pinny that they can please take a snap of the wire form (and possibly the under playfield switch area) or know where I can buy one?
Does anyone know where I can buy the spinner switch SW-1A-171 or whether there is a substitute?
Excuse the essay and big thanks to toyotaboy who has already very kindly shared the laser cutting files for the custom brackets. A true legend!
