Onto troubleshooting why my MPU isnt booting. Ive repinned A1J5, A1J6, all power connectors. 5v is solid, pic of the small amount of battery corrosion I cleaned attached. Clock signal is high low pulsing, IRQ is stuck low, r/w pins all either stuck low or high. When solenoid driverboard is attached, random lights and solenoids fire (I believe this is called the thunk?). Interconnect harness was repinned on both sides.
With an IRQ stuck low, what should I do? I have a spare parts Gottlieb Mpu which I believe to be a System 80. It has a socketed Motorola 6802, is this a drop-in replacement for the 6502? I want to make sure before I do anything because none of the chips on my complete MPU are socketed
