    1964 GRAND TOUR EM-7 Segment Displays

    Just toying around with the idea...
    Being able to replace a standard EM score reel bank with an Electronic one.
    This is a multiplexed unit but it has inputs that accept separate pulsed dry contacts.
    Basically an input for 10 - 100 - 1000 derived from the coil pulses to the score reel.
    The extension of this is it can do Replay , Match and Highest Score.
    Going to have a crack at this on a single player 60s Grand Tour.

    Looks outstanding I think if you can get it all tied in together and working fluently. Amazing how hard it can be to get digital electronics working with EM technology.

    Ow I have total faith he will get it running and running well. Could you imagine the weight saving if this was done on a 4 player EM?.

    POP upgrade

    Parts for this particular pop system have
    All but dried up so...

    - created new centre hole.
    - cut New holes.
    - mounted generic pops.

    Flipper Upgrade

    Once again these Flipper Mecs are too hard to source.

    Install of Williams Mecs and lightning flippers.

    They look like Data East or Sega flipper assemblies but all those parts are interchangeable with Williams anyway. If you want to use short coils on those flipper assemblies, just drill new holes to suit the coil retainer but leave the long plungers in and they will work perfectly with the short coils.
    Here is an example with a Stern Meteor using Williams assemblies but retaining the original Stern short coils...



    Pity you didn't ask as I have heaps of bumper parts and would have gladly swapped some of those old bally score reel assemblies for them.
