The Chicago Coin "Top Ten" pin I purchased didn't have flipper button assemblies. Just the cut wires remain and I don't have a schematic to check how to wire them up correctly to my new switches coming in the mail soon. The right flipper button has 3 wires and the left looks like it has 5?? Can someone help me out here on how to wire them up correctly or post a couple pictures showing how your flipper button wires are set up?

What color are the wires on the flipper coils?

Here's pics of the flippers coils right now. I have the left coil assembly, but I'm waiting for the flipper buttons and switches to arrive before I put everything back together.

So, I've gotten the right flipper working correctly and the new left flipper coil installed and wired up. The only thing left to do now is install the left flipper button and switch but I don't understand why the left button has more wires. Does anyone have a picture to help me out with this? I'd like to get this up and running today.

The wires are as follows:
2 solid green wires
1 green with black dashes
1 orange with green dashes
1 white with red dashes

I saw a picture of that switch. It's a DOUBLE switch stack, like the game has a lane change feature or something. Em pinman did a resto on a top ten with pictures. I could see the five wires for the switch, but can't make out where they go. My GUESS ## the 2 plain greens and white with red dashes for the flipper, the remaining 2 wires to the second switch stack for whatever feature that is.
