Thanks in advance

This is a new to me game that had duct tape covering both cellar entrances. Coil moves freely, switches both work and 50v is présent but up kick coil doesn’t fire in test mode. It appears that the aux board location is Q7.

Where I’m lost is is this most likely a connection issue, a transistor or a signal issue due to cpu?

I’m not sure where to turn next.. so far I’ve found duct tape, silver hvac tape, rubber bands used as return springs, brown extension cord wire tied into the transformer and a ground braid that i can’t see where it came off of.

I could use some help please before i place my reorder for more high speed bubble gum and thumb tacks for my necessary repairs...

Last few pics for your enjoyment

Does it fire if you ground the lug of the coil directly?
