I'm new to the site...
I had a perhaps long winded background typed up about this machines history, had some pics, then I guess I hit a wrong button and it all disappeared
So if your interested I can rattle on about it later.
I acquired the Wizard probably 10 years ago, in unknown condition, it has sat in a barn out in the cold (-40) for the last 5 or so years.
I know I know, I understand if I am chastised for that..
The back glass graphic are flawless (phew) the play field is also in very good condition.
I am a HD mechanic so I know my way around electrical and mechanical systems fairly well.
I put the head on, polished the connector pins with a brass wire brush and applied a *light coat of dielectric grease.
Reseated the connectors from the play field on to the lower relay/switch board (not cleaned or greased)
Checked briefly the rotary switches and they seem to be in good shape and move freely
The score wheels are a bit sticky and will need cleaning.
Plugged it in..... nothing.
No motorized switch drum
If I tap the L flapper the 2nd coin chute relay chatters as long as the button is depressed.
Started to check things
The transformer is outputting the correct voltages at all the taps and that correct voltage is being transferred through the fuses (checked at terminals)
Found the coin return sol not connected (looks like previous owner didn't finish the job)
Soldered them on.
Found the coin mech micro switch malfunctioning, swapped that out with a good one.
These repairs didnt change much.
What does happen is now the coin switch makes the 2nd coin chute chatter intermittently causing 1 or more credits to count on the wheel with 1 coin insertion.
Now there are few wires just not connected to anything by a couple relays... but they look cut, and I cannot see where they would go if they just broke off... I dont have any books or schematics, so was wondering (hoping) someone here could point me in the right direction
Heres my diamond in the rough
Heres a pic of the *mystery wires at the relay bank in the bottom of the cabinet
