I tested/short q8 and it activates the relay - hear clicks
I checked ohms on the coil and its over 3.5ohms
All outhole and trough switches check out good

Relay board c-11677-2 connector looks toasty... how can I test / measure the components in and out of series?

Where do I go from here...

Also bottom scoring display row is out. Power board issues?

i rewired the relay board, no change. only getting 40v to the lugs on the coil... any thoughts?

Quoted from vintageclub:

Q33 is what activates the outhole kicker. Try shorting the tab on that and see if your outhole kicker fires. If not, check the wiring to the coil, and of course the coil itself.

Coil checks out 3.5ohms and 40v to both lugs. I short q33 and nothing happens. Do I need to short q8 actively and then try to short q33? If I short other tip122's stuff happens. Should I pull the board and test q33 in diode mode? Should I just replace feom the ttl on down on my mpu?

Congrats on the new machine and good luck getting it up and running. Any chance you can reply to my DM's?

I am suspecting the transistors and maybe more down to the 7408 chip at U20 because I have multiple coils not firing and flashers on the same transistor not working (with brand new 906's in them). 7408 chip at U20 controls the pairs Q20/Q24, Q21/Q25, Q28/Q32, Q29/Q33 of 2N4401 and TIP122/102 solenoid drivers. Here is a video of the coil test :

For whatever reason the left half of my backglass GI came back on lol - and I am getting no voltage to the Outhole coil lugs.

Also, I appreciate your help vintage club, when I get home I will test from the transistor to the connector. Is this thread in the correct sub forum? I thought I would get way more sys 11 guru's to chime in.

Thank you again!

After I figure out my coil issue I gotta check out the displays too: https://www.youtube.com/edit?video_id=c40-sPEkH_Y
