Got an F-14 that I haven't seen, but am supposed to diagnose. The upper popper (3A) and one of the two center kickers do not work. Measuring the transistors they are all fine, but before I dive in to deep testing, I'm wondering if those solenoids are supplied by the same power line, one that could have a broken wire. The other tech, of course, did not test to see if the C side flashers were working, so I'm kind of making guesses as to where the problem is. Anyone know real quick if these guys share a power source?
