On early Bally - Start with connectors yes, but another common issue i've found (recently on Elektra) is diodes and capacitors for switches.
I've worked on 2 Elektras and both had the same row of switches out: Top middle standup, Mid middle standup, bottom middle standup(s), Left outlane, and 2 star rollovers in shooter lane.
I spent many days rebuilding connectors (remember to label or do something to tell which ones you did, and don't stop in the middle)
After that, look to the diodes and capacitors.
