Guys - as you know I have been extracting Gremlins from my 1961 Aloha machine for a few months. I have the game playing great now! However, I have a problem that cropped up when I fixed an issue with the far right dead bumper lamp. It was not lighting up and it was not because of a bad light or socket. I tracked it down to the continuous stepper unit on the back of the machine - found a broken wire - fixed it, and now the bumper lights up. HOWEVER, there is something out of sequence from before I fixed this bumper lamp. Initially the two bumpers must be lit on either side of the roll over switch to light the pop bumper below it (see image). Now the pop bumpers light up if ONE of the dead bumpers - left side only - is lit. What was the default - i.e. stock - situation for these lighting events? I suspect having one on each side lit was stock, but I just don't know. I also preferred it that way. Any suggestions besides just cutting the wire?
