Putting in new transistor, just waiting for new coil to arrive (hopefully by Sat.). Hopefully this will work. I'll report back once complete.

Success! Installed the new flipper coil and another new transistor and she works!

Tested the diode on the old coil and got continuity both ways so it looks like it might just have been the diode. Oh well, just happy the machine is up and running again.

Thanks to all for the help!

Did you clip it off to test? The coil has much less resistance than the diode so you will get continuity both ways.

Yep, clipped it off when testing.
