F-14 Tomcat Sling Input
Hey Group!
Ok, one last call for help for my F-14 Tomcat...
I have everything working now except the Left Sling.
When machine is energized, the coil rapid fire kicks till blows the fuse.
The Main board is NOT seeing the switch for the left sling.
I have even pulled the connector off the main board and jumpered the common to the Orange-Brown connection and nothing. It still doesn't see the input from the switch.

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

No help ☹️

Energized. Is that when a game is started or when its turned on? If it chatters when a game is started the switch needs adjusting. The score switch on the underside of the playing field near the sling isnt the issue.

The switch does not register at all...
I've even jumpered at the main board...
The right side works perfectly.

I'm testing in diagnostics mode.

I'll check when I get home to see if chatter is at power on or start of game.

Thank you!!!!!

The chatter comes on when you start to play.

But like I said, in diagnostics, you do NOT see the left kicker switch at all...
