Working on a Viking project. The wiring harness in the backbox has a "Hot Dog" (Hotdoggin' ?) tag on it.

I'm assuming games of this vintage with the same board set will have the same wiring harness in the back box.

True?

That is common and probably done at the factory. My Playboy had hang tags in that said Bobby Orr’s Power Play. They were crossed out and somebody wrote in pencil “Playboy” on them.

The early Bally games there were few if any differences between the backbox cables. I believe both games have the identical board set so they could share cables.
