So when I fire up the beast it makes an electrical hum noise that's fairly loud. I replaced the 3 capacitors on the audio board that sit near the VR's and the sound quality improved, but there is still a hum, I unplugged the soundboard and sound was gone but the hum remained.

any advice?

All boards have all of their screws and all screws are tight? Works for games I have tried it on, but have never owned a Data East.

Yeah, in a home you notice it way more than you ever could in an arcade. Glad it helped!!! Nothing like a cheap easy fix right?
