I had this documented in a notebook but it got lost in the Christmas preparation and festivities that have since overrun my basement. Now this is one of the last things holding me up from completing my re-assembly and playing.

Would any fellow owners provide me with precisely where each wire from the four pop bumper lamps need to be re-soldered to under the playfield? I have attached a picture of both above and below playfield for clarification. Thanks.

pop bumper one one wire goes to lug to the left of pop bumper with yellow wire soldered on, the other wire goes to the
lug with a diode just above the where the first wire went.
pop 2,3,4 have one wire going to the diode board, lug 1 below 4th pop bumper.
pop 2 goes to the 5 lug, 1-7 counting top to bottom.
pop 3 goes to 3rd lug and pop 4 goes to the 7th/ last lug

you under the playing field picture is upside down

The picture of the underneath is not upside but the same orientation as the top of the playfield picture (not the Force coil outhole under the pop bumper labeled 4 and the semi-circle light board to the left of 3).

Does that change your numbering of the pop bumpers and their corresponding locationes (ie, 1 is 4 and 2 is 3)?

yes with the playing field flipped up the diode board wound be on the bottom. 1 and 4 would be reviresed

you right under pic needs to be rotated 180
on top pop is on left side and 3 next to drop target
your under pic has 2 on right hand side.

I gotcha. The playfield is out of the cabinet so I can just spin it horizontally to get to the back. If it was in the cabinet still and I lifted the playfield then the image would be rotated 180 degrees. I'm tracking now. Thanks.
