    Balisticast Machine

    So back in December I purchased a lot of casting stuff.
    In with the other stuff was an old Balisticast machine.
    I run a Magma Bullet Master but when it's down (not often) production kind of suffers.
    Here's the thing:
    The Lead Control switch is partially disconnected.
    I can speculate on how to put it back together but I was wondering if anybody that had one would help me by taking a photo of the connection on their machine and either post it or pm me.

    Thanks in advance for not laughing at my purchase. I

    It has 8 pins.
    It's a plug-in timer.
    The part I am concerned about is that there are 3 wires just hanging out near the harness where the timer plugs in.

    Do these wires need to be connected to something, like the harness?

    Ok mine has an 8 pin as well.
    Only 5 terminals are used. Mine has been rewired so colors probably won't help. If you can trace or test curcuits you should be able to see if you havee all of it connected to the timer.
    Number 1 is white and goes to indicator light.
    2 is red and goes to trip switch.
    3,4, and 5 not used.
    6 is load or pour solenoid and black.
    7 is power from main switch and red.
    8 is jumpered from 7.
    Hope this helps you get it goin.
