    You only need a wire to the AMC box jumped across the #2 & #3 terminal in the strip closest to the foulline in the Sure Pik control box.

        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">It's the black box(!) between the two machines at the front of your machines above the downsweep that you can't open without breaking you fingernails.

          Might be a gray NEMA box, and in installations where there was enough wire, it would be mounted on the curtain wall. It has cables going into one opening from the APPROACH, wires from the black junction box (MANAGERS CONTROL) into another, and two cables coming out, one to each pinspotter at their respective A&amp;MC plug. This plug is on the side of the front cross beam on older machines (A's, B's, ELCO's), and in the front of the machine near the ball exit side on later machines (C23 &amp; MP).

              Since ya got autoscoring there I'll describe it as ours looks. Little box on the curtain wall with wires all the heck over the place lol
              If they're the same as ours should be close to the center of a pair on the curtain wall

              All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

                It sounds like he might have a bit of a bigger job than that... I saw a house like that once. They removed all the control circuits, and hardwired the motor and blower to power, controlled by a set of switches (1 for each return). If that's the case, it's gonna be a bit of work.
