Just need a quick sanity check. Does the connector from the backglass illumination go to the interconnect board connection j7, pins 6-10?

The one on mine has 6 pins with a couple disconnected and red in pin 6 of the connector.

I'll be putting in Comet Comet LEDs but have read some things about using incandescent bulbs for the flashers. Is this a good idea & why? Thanks

Because LED flashers are freakin bright. And traditional flashers look good still.

Ah... It's the lone wire that's going to J11 on the interconnect board.

I had LED flashers. It something about the System 11 boards/wiring caused the flashers to flicker when I hit flippers. There’s a way to install diodes on each flasher to stop it from happening, but in the end, I didn’t want to alter the game originality and put the incandescent flashers back in. Only on the flashers insert the red domes. I did put a mix of white and purple LED in the flashers behind the back panel clouds and they work/look great!
