My Little Chief is coming along pretty well after a 20 year sleep,I have replaced the rubbers,the flippers and solenoid slugs and links,the score reels reset most of the time now,the more I play it the better it works.
But now I'm noticing a couple problems,the biggest problem is the flippers jump when you try to catch the ball,they seem to have plenty of power but when I try to catch the ball the flipper jump,and almost aways flips the ball into the side chutes,I thought it was the wore out slugs causing the problems but even with all the new flipper parts it's still doing it.
I read where you can increase the voltage to the flipper. Is this safe and advisable? Both of the flipper solenoids have been replaced at some point in the machines life,but I don't know when,is there some way to test them? Should I check the voltage to them,what should that be?
I have cleaned all the contact points related to the flippers,that I know of,with so many in there I have a hard keeping track of what does what!
The other problem I am having is the center kick out hole score lights,they only light up once in a while and usually only 2-3 lights before they go out,so I never get the special to light up,again I have cleaned all the contacts I can find,on the advance unit and the relay,nothing seems to help,any suggestions much appreciated!
