I picked up a routed CBW that had good bones but needed some love. Having never owned/played the game I decided to clean and restore it for a new life. After tearing down the PF and cleaning all the mechs, I began my reassembly(my pics helped.) I decided to check that all the GI sockets/bulbs would light before I bury them under ramps etc. Good news they all did, but I have a non GI bulb on as well. As best i can figure it is not a lamp, but a solenoid fired bulb under the red plastic on the shooter playboard(right behind the 2 green target switches the Cue Ball would hit. I have no idea what causes this bulb to light. It appears it may be solenoid 19, but I'm even clumsier trying to figure out a GTB schematic as opposed to BW. Can anyone offer some direction?

I know you asked this question a while ago but I figured I would add my 2c anyway. I recently cleaned up a routed CBW and made some changes regarding that specific flash lamp. My original horseshoe/red plastic was melted and busted right there but I found another. The replacement one has some damage from the heat but not nearly as bad.

I found that the flasher was painfully bright (especially with the older broken red plastic) so I added a bendie red flasher from comet
(( actual LED's are mounted on a puck that has two wires which can be bent to aim the light )) and aimed it towards the playfield at about a 45 degree angle. Now the flashing doesn't blind the player and also has a cool effect by lighting up the PF when activated.

I didn't have a pic of the flasher in action but can add one if you like.
Cheers.
