Quoted from Coyote:

Yeah, that's the common sign that the hold part of the coil isn't working. Usually broken wire, but in your case, since the Fliptronics board was loose and shorted, the transistor for that hold coil should be blown.

Looks like I was wrong! The coil has no hold power... very weird! I tried grounding it and nothing. Doesn’t do a thing. I think it’s got an internal break... don’t come across that every day!

This game is really routed to hell, it seems complete to me, but this guy fudged it for decades. Does this look complete and correct to the fellow owners? I’ve spent several hours already de-hacking it... minus the Elvira flipper which was the only one I had on hand

That looks complete, including the broken/missing "assist/tackle" plastic every game seemingly has

Woot! Glad you got it figured, and cheaper coil replacement than a new Fliptronics board or repair.

I’ve just put my WCS back together and now every time I score a goal the ball flies off the wire form onto the playfield
What kind of adjustments can be made there and is that a common problem?

The brass piece on the bottom right ramp post is in the wrong location and is supposed to hold up the wireform on the top right post.

Got my new WCS playfield from CPR today that I am going to put into the machine I currently own. I was happy that the skin tones weren't "jaundice yellow" like another in this thread, but I did get a whole new skin tone: caramel! Just to confirm for myself how bad a color match it was, I compared some Pantone swatches (one machine was installed on a game so it was hard to put the playfields side-by-side). I honestly don't mind the mistake, since it looks like an actual skin color. I might even prefer it, as I have often wondered why all the figures on the World Cup Soccer machine were all lilly white...but still. Who lets this leave the factory like this!

The original
The CPR
The difference

Thank you very much! This is why I posted here, great eye!

Does it go under or over the ramp plastic in the upper corner?
There’s no indent or anything on the ramp so it’s probably been that way for most of its life.
The operator I got these from really just didn’t care at all. His way to move games was the most difficult method I’ve ever used. Just backbreaking nonsense! But I digress...

Thanks for the help, it’s now fixed!
