Just as the title says, the lowers work fine, the upper doesn't work at all, during the tests it does nothing, in game it does nothing. I checked the connections, and it seems like they are all there. I'm new to pinball so I'm not really sure where to go from there.

Fuse good - I checked mine and it was good
When I ground center lug the coil fires perfect - Should I try this? How do I do it?
75v present when i test either outside lugs. - How do I test for this?

have you checked that the right flipper button is working properly? the button actually has two switches, one that activates the lower flipper, and another which activates the upper flipper. is it possible the switch for the upper flipper isn't registering?

Yep, go into switch edge test and press the flipper button in slowly, the first opto should close followed by the second one. If it doesn't the opto is either dirty, broken, has a bad solder joint or the interrupter is bad.

So.. I found out that the fuse was hidden by the ribbon cable, it had a little burn in it, I replaced it and it is working again.

Now I'm back to the problem I had before, I'm going to replace the connector on my trough and try it again
