F-14 Coin slot circuitry

Postby Outback199 » Wed Aug 01, 2018 9:18 pm

The Coin mech's were deleted from my F-14 Tomcat.

I'm going to add coin drop buttons, https://groovygamegear.com/webstore/ind ... cts_id=410

I have figured out switch matrix connections to the coin1 and 2 slot.

The bottom two large wires have 3.5 voltage, and I think 1.5. Were the original coin slots lit? I want to light the coin drop buttons as well.

Looks like I've found my answer....

Two wires are 5.9VAC - wont work for what I need.

Yes, there is one #44 bulb behind each coin slot button.
Why not set the machine to free play?

Thanks!

It is currently in free play. The coin slot was deleted, and I dont like the look. Just looking for something to fill the space, might as well have it work.

It would obviously look better if you filled the holes with the original coin buttons with the lights behind them.
There is no need for the fancy buttons to increase the number of credits.
Unless you really want to insert coins, there is no need for the actual coin mechanism.
It's pretty common for the coin mechanism to be missing in a used pinball because
the operators were removing them before selling the machine.
