Recently acquired an Expo from 1968... while debugging it I noticed the match unit has a bell (pretty hard to miss, actually) but no mech for striking it. I've only worked on a handful of other EMs and while I'm familiar with the base mechs of these units, I've never seen a bell attached:
This game does have a scoring bell in its lower cab, and it works.
On Expo this match unit is used to advance a numeric "selection" feature on the playfield every time any pop bumper and/or certain standups are hit. I watched a couple vids and sure enough, I realized a second bell was ringing every time the selection advanced.
Seems like this could be acheived by having a link connected to the step-up mech.
So can anyone tell me what the piece looked like and how it was connected?
