Mr. Pinball Tip:

If coils are burnt, they can be revived if not to badly damaged. They should measure 3-5 ohms; less than 2 and the coil is bad or the diode across the coil is shorted. Loosen the coil, set carefully in a vice, and use a electric drill to bore the burn sleeve out. To make smooth, use sandpaper around a stick or drill to polish the inside. Measure to make sure the wire isn't shortened. If the sleeve is too damaged, renew it, or try to go without.
