While I'm still on my paternity leave and that the baby is asleep, I thought it would be a good idea to work on my dismembered Cyclone that has been sitting in boxes for about 7 years now.
Currently, I'm at the stage of rebuilding the lamp harness, but I'm missing some info about how the #18 lamps are connected together and to the harness.

Here's the info I've got:
1. Page 38 & 39 of the manual (lamp circuitry & lamps) don't tell much except for the color coding of the wires that connects to the lamps.
2. From my notes I've written while taking the machine apparts, both red-blk wires should be soldered together on the same terminal of the smaller #18 socket, same for the two yel-orn wires. I've got nothing about the larger socket except for its identification.
3. Image from the Cyclone gallery of underneath the playfield are too blurry to help me on that.
4. Haven't looked through the pictures of the club topic. Will update if I find something.
*Update: pic of that area underneath the playfield are still blurry on that topic, but the larger socket isn't wired to the small one from what I can tell.*

How is it wirred on your's? Pictures would greatly help.

Thanks in advance,
Francis

Quoted from pintime:

Thanks a lot.
So yeah, turns out I've most probably labeled wrong the flasher. Page 40 of the manual (Solenoids/Flashers) gives the position of the flashers on the playfield and it matches with your picture (even tho the description of the flashers doesn't between p.28 and 40).
