I need some help in restoring an American Flyer 775 baggage platform to proper operation. Here are the problems and questions.
1. What kind of string should I use for the moving gate and how do I attach it to the man ? Should I drill a hole in the man for the string or tie it around his arm.
2. When I aply current, the solenoid vibrates, as if the polarity is rapidly reversing, and it doesn't move. With a very light tap on the end, it retracts as I woudl expect. What is the fix ?
