Need some help. I have been searching for some time now for a part for my pinball machine. i need a game lock relay. It uses coils Z 27 1000 and M 29 1000. These are Williams parts and readily available. Its the metal unit that attaches to the board. Hoping someone can direct me to a source for parts or ideally someone has this part which I can purchase.In he photo it is the lower unit that I need

Maybe you could but a similar Williams frame and move the rest over. Btw..i also own this game.

Contacted pbresource, awaiting their reply. Bonzo71, the plate plates misalign ad the spring is worn out.......Hoping someone has a Zaccaria game of the era (1976) and I can find the unit.

You only need the metal bracket and the spring? Can you fabricate something?

Unless you're a stickler for originality you should be able to make one of the interlock relays from ebay work.

I tinker with the machine but don't feel confident doing my own rebuild. The metal bracket is good as far as I can see, the plastic plates don't pull in or align properly. First suspect is the spring. (?)
Or maybe I should be looking elsewhere? When a game is started the ball index is all over the place. It for the most part plays one ball and game over. It will register two or three balls at the start of a game, but goes to game over when the ball drains out. A tech who looked at the machine suggested it was the game over relay. Am I looking for the right thing?

I'll need to see a high quality scan of the schematic from (for example) Staples ($2) or Kinkos ($6)

I have the original schematic. Quite large, Scan in pieces? It's a bit faded in parts for being 40 + years old

Do you have an office supply store with a large format scanner in your area?

I can check. I don't know that they will.

PM you email and I can send a schematic scan.

These are the 4 circuits that can make the game go to game over. If the Lock relay isn't activating when this happens, put slips of paper in these 3 switches to see if one of them is causing the Game Over relay to "trip".

I'd also be interested in a schematic scan if it becomes available, thanks!

Thank you Howard R for the info.I will try your suggestion

Pinwizkid contact Bonzo71, he provided me with a pdf scan. I don;t want to copy and distribute his material without his permission
