An interesting problem has developed on my Sea Ray. The game works perfectly until you drop a ball into the bonus alley on the right of the playfield. It then collects the bonus, kicks the ball out, and will continue scoring 1000 points and firing the kicker until the ball drains. Hitting the top hole collects the bonus as usual and works fine afterward. It is only the right alley collect that's doing it. The right alley switch is fine and opens when the ball is kicked

From the schematic, it seems like it has to be the right alley relay is being held in, and indeed it is pulled in while this is happening. Here's a snip of the schematic:

As is typical, it looks like the right alley relay is held in by a switch on that relay itself. Pretty typical. It looks like that relay should drop out via score motor 10C. That score motor switch seems to be fine. The right alley kicker coil runs through that right alley relay and also a bonus unit zero switch. The top hole eject, which works fine, also runs through that bonus unit zero switch so I ruled that out.

Anyone have any other thoughts?

What happens if you put a slip of paper in the 10C score motor switch?
