      Be very careful if you clean the reels. Whatever ink Gottlieb used is not very resistant to liquids.

      I've heard a piece of white bread works well to clean them, but I've never tried it.

        You could for a last resort print some up on gloss decal paper the link below has a file download for the Gottlieb score reel decals.

            so seeing the pic with all the cam switches removed and the cam wheel still in place.......is that's why the switches are are all off because you decided to leave it in place?
            hope you took plenty of pics.

            if you decide to keep the score reels, using a bit of spit/saliva on the end of cotton buds has worked for me.
            i have found the latter of Gottlieb ink on the reels is different than earlier ones, meaning you can clean lightly, ever so lightly with say a glass cleaner.
            you might try the least used number, say a nine on the 10 thousands reel to test, again with care.

                  I have put everything back together. Before I pull the game to bits and repaint the cab I want to get it working at least to start a game.
                  Ok. I have adjusted and cleaned things and now the game will go thru the reset sequence. The hold relay is bypassed at the moment. The NO contacts are soldered together. I put a coin in and the s relay does its thing. The scorereels reset. Ball count now goes back to zero. Targets reset. A relay does its thing as it is meant to but when the ball is placed in the outsole nothing happens.
                  Any suggestions?

                        When you say out hole do you mean manually placing the ball in the shooter lane ?

                          Sorry I meant when the ball goes in the between flippers it isn't pushing it over to the shooter lane. I cant manually advance the ball count unit. No flippers or anything on the playfield works except lights.
