So, I just completed a full-on Rollergames restoration. Finally got the entire playfield re-assembled, had CPU and Aux. Driver boards checked out (both are good to go), and yet, when put the game in Coil Test mode, 2 coils don't activate and 2 flashers don't light. The flashers are solenoid 03C and 04C (switched solenoids), and the coils that don't work are the ramp diverter (coil #18) and the drop target reset (06A). It is possible that the flashers are simply burnt out bulbs; I realize as I type this that I need to swap out the bulbs to make sure those aren't the problem. But the coils I can't figure. Is this simply a matter of needing to re-flow the solder? That would be great.

Check the easy stuff first - make sure the bulbs are good and that you have voltage to the coils. It should be 50v for the diverter and 25v for the drop targets.
I'm just finishing my RG off after re-decalling the cab ☺
