It is well known that all Gottlieb schematics and manuals are copyrighted and can not be posted legally to the Internet.
Just pay the $20 and get them from PBR.

Can someone send me a picture of the back box. I have a Jones plug unit that is just hanging in the back. I don't see where it is suppose to attach in the back box.
Thanks

The Jones plugs are mounted to a board that just floats in the back box. I haven't assembled my Soccer yet, but my 300 has the same thing. Plug the jones plugs into the sockets and then just tuck the board into the neck opening. Here is a pic of my Soccer Back box. I'm looking for a pic of what relay I am missing next to the scoring relays. I know I missing the 00-90 relay, but not sure what the other one missing is.

Gottlieb and their supposed quality dominance. There have been endless posts about their latching relays and logic issues, especially in the mid to late 70's...BUT, the back box logic board with the dangling jones plug design is just plain BUSH LEAGUE

That's not typically how Gottlieb mounted jones plugs in the back box. Normally they are not on a piece of wood, but rather they are mounted in the lower back box under the player unit.

As far as quality, IMO Gottlieb products were more robust in general. Not saying their designs were always better but the component design was usually good. Now, I prefer to work on William's and Bally's as they are laid out better for the repair guy, easier to service.

I hate the Gottlieb short throw loaded switch stacks as much as anyone!

The Jones Plugs in Soccer were mounted that way so they could fit the mechs for the Bonus Balls.

BubbaK looking at your backbox, you are only missing the 00-90 relay which would connect to the Jones plug that is right above the bracket that holds the L, M, and N relay

Thanks.. It looks like one more relay is missing. I've got a few wires tied up with electrical tape. I haven't really looked at the machine yet to see what wires they are, but I figured there was a missing relay..
