How To Wire Flippers for a 3- or 4-Flipper Game
[Editors Note: This information applies to early Bally flippers. These are ‘serial coils’. This does not apply to later Bally / Williams WPC flippers that contain ‘parallel coils’.]
Just in case you need to wire up your flippers, here’s how they should be connected in a 3- or 4-flipper game for the pair of lower/upper flippers. If your game only has one set of lower/upper flippers (e.g., Paragon, Flash Gordon, etc…), then of course this info only applies to the one pair (either right or left side).
