Before I start troubleshooting, my Twin Win pop bumpers are always lit up but the caps say "100 points when lit".
Are the pops supposed to be always lit up?
The few videos I have seen look like the same thing, always lit.

I am assuming I have the right pop caps.

All the photos I've seen of this playfield showed the pop bumpers always lit. Also saw a few photos that had aftermarket pop bumper caps without the "when lit" script. The sales flyer shows the game with "when lit" bumper caps. Maybe Bally had an overstock of "when lit" bumper caps during that time, they decided to save money and used them on Twin Win. You can also look at the schematic to see how the pop bumper lamp circuits are designed...

I just got a Twin Win and had the same issue / question. I’m resurrecting this thread to answer it for future owners.

Looking at the schematic at IPDB, there are no lights shown for the pops. Thus: general illumination always lit.

As to the pop caps, there are pictures shown with green and yellow sun, green and yellow sun 100 pts when lit, and the red sun with flags. The poster has 100 pts when lit, green & yellow.

Mine has 100 pts when lit and although someone did a nice restore on the pf, the caps are toasty enough that I’ll call them original. But, I’m going with the flags, because it looks good with the machine's art and flags seem right for a race game.
