    If your having to go through all that trouble to make some sort of testing rig then I'd just replace them and that way there are no second guesses, and once it's done you'll be good for a life time. To replace a socket with the bulb is about $1

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Trying to process how splicing a wall plug is more work than replacing 20+ sockets

    That is true, but then if your already taking them out of the game and hooking them up on a jig of some sort then why not just replace them? Old lamp sockets are just to finicky, especially the Bally ones as we all know. Williams on the other hand I never have a problem. I'd just rather not deal with sockets that you get working and put the playfield down and the lock down bar on it's out again. Once you get into the rhythm of replacing them they go pretty fast. For $1 each you'll never have to mess with it again.
