T.H Bergmann Hurricane wiring

Postby retromanic2 » Sun Jul 28, 2019 11:06 am

Hello Everyone,
A few years ago now I picked up a really beaten up Hurricane Ice hockey Machine, the bottom had rotted out and various parts were missing.
Over time I have managed to get it back into some sort of order and now need to power the machine.
As all the connections were cut I need confirmation on some wiring if possible.
First thing is the coin solenoid wires Red/Clear and Leaf Switch Black/Blue where do these connect to on the Main Junction Block.

I have hooked up the playfield wiring following the colours to the main connector block.

After several blown fuses and an on/off switch there is a little progress.
If the first switch contacts are shorted the machine motor starts and does one cycle.

Table Lights Working.
Table Ball Solenoid Latching.
Score Bell Working.
Score Counter Reels Reset.
Coin Solenoid Latching.

Until I can get confirmation on the correct wiring for the coin set up I will just use a push button to start the machine cycle. At least then it will be playable.

The next step now is to try and get the score lights working, as the original clinch type circuit boards have long gone.

Keep going, and make sure you're wearing your rubber gloves.

Thanks for the encouragement, this is proving to be a long slog...
I have just uncovered a spliced wire, and it's miles from the right colour. Not the sort of thing I was expecting.
