If you took it apart to transport, make sure your Jones plugs are all plugged in correctly and fit snugly.

Quoted from jlbintn:

I did not transport it, but it was transported professionally, by a shipper who is no stranger to moving these machines. Something else I need is a good manual that identifies what each switch bank is, and does. I'll eventually figure that out, but right now I'm running blind, so to speak.
Thanks for the tips, I'm going to hit it fresh tomorrow, and this gives me something to start with.

Here's the manual:

Quoted from jlbintn:

Checked the fuses, they're all good, but I'm ordering new fuse holders. I hope to put the meter on the transformer today.
edit to add:
scoring motor is now functioning properly, scoring seems to be fine, but I don't know the game well enough to know if everything is scoring properly.

No need to check the transformer. It's the fuse holders. It's a Bally. It's always the fuse holders

Easiest way to tell if a game is scoring properly is to go through and hit every possible scoring switch with your finger and observe what it does. Since Fireball is a multi-ball game you'll have to put balls in the right and left captive holes and trigger switches to see if they release properly.

This might help a little:
