Does anyone have access to an Allied Leisure game who could snap a photo of the outhole solenoid? (Dyno-mite, Rock On, TNT, Thunderbolt, or Boogie)

At some point, someone removed the wires from the lugs of the outhole kicker solenoid, so I'm not quite sure what the correct orientation was.

I made a guess of how it was supposed to be wired, but nothing happens when the solenoid is supposed to fire. So, I'm not sure if it's wired incorrectly or if there is a board problem. Before I start desoldering wires and components, I was hoping to verify the wiring for the lugs before chasing after things that aren't actually problems.

Thank you

My guess on the wiring and diode orientation

Well, in studying the schematics a bit more, it seems that the wires on each lug need to be swapped around. I'll have to do that tomorrow.

Well, I swapped the wires and nada. Looks like I'll need to backtrace the issue further. Wiring, relays, connectors, or transistors on the board that controls the relays.
