A huge THANK_YOU TO IBIS !!!!!!!!
« on: July 31, 2018, 05:16:48 PM »
who was kind enough to come by my crib today to meet and work on the Gottlieb from Hell!
 While here, he swore his allegiance to the "FLORIDA FAMILY OF EM JAMOKES'
 This is a very secret organization  that encourages the care and feeding of all things EM but mostly the early 60s Gottliebs.
 So as he stood there, palms up in front of him, he held the burning 2 inch flipper rubber as it burned! Passing it back and forth he stated " May I burn like this 2 inch flipper rubber If I ever say I like Solid State games more then EMs".
 He was then given his new cigar ring membership card number, 8, or was it 18? maybe it was 111, whatever and told to never ever touch the inside of a coin door when any Gottlieb is plugged in.
 So as a result, the Gottlieb from HELL still doesn't work right, but we understand its deep down personal secrets.
THANKS IBIS, really appreciate it! Plus hes a really good guy!

LOL, thanks for your hospitality!  You have an amazing collection!  Loved looking at those beautiful wedge heads!  Ya, we definitely stayed clear of the ominous coin door, and I thoroughly enjoyed burning some flipper rubbers!!  Im wearing my cigar ring proudly! 

We did at least wittle down the gremlin, even if it was just a little bit.  I still think there is something hokey about that alternator coil(AS), that blue/white/red is definitely the wire we were looking for, but that coil does squat when manually pressed.  Tested continuity in many places and it all checked out so there is definitely something not engaging to send voltage to the PF.  Im sure Ill stay up tonight going through that game in my head!
