Having a bit of trouble with this williams lucky ace. I primarily work on newer pinball and arcade games, but i do have a fair ammount of experience with EM's. Im just not an expert and would appreciate any help here!
I was able to get the game from %100 dead to just about working. Currently the only two issues ive yet to iron out after going through the whole machine and fixing various things using my beginner schematic reading skills are;
1.) The 1000 reel doesnt advance, pressing on the 1000 relay will fire the chime, but no movement on the reel. Pressing all 1000 point switches on the playfield properly fire the relay, but no points are ever scored. There are no stuck switches on the playfield. It will not reset during start up either, i had to manually pull the plunger to get to zero for the start up. All score reels have been dissasembled/properly cleaned.
2.) The main issue is during the start up sequence, with the ball in the outhole, it will not properly finish. What happens when you hit start, score reels reset, ball count stepper gets set to 3 balls, power is given to the flippers etc, and then the bonus unit goes down to zero and then kicks up one unit, then back down to zero, then up one, then loops there. The outhole relay continously fires, and the ball is never kicked out of the outhole. What is confusing me is that with the ball OUT of the outhole, and then activating the outhole relay by hand, the outhole kicker activates. Only when the ball is in the outhole is when the outhole relay wont fire the kicker. I have inspected the bonus unit for obvious issues and disassembled/properly cleaned the unit, but i cant find the issue.
Thank you in advance! would love to get this game working.
