I have always wondered why when they initiated Jamma standard no common wire color chart went along with it !! 30 years as a pro game tech. and for me this was a no brainer !! About time the industry adopted this chart. It would save manufactures mucho $$$$ to stock the same color wires on large rolls and cut as needed. On my games I also use .92 molex on power supply wires and .62 on coin door and control panel wires. Triflacon pins on the Monitor vid in Molex connector and I braid my harness for neatness and strength if there,s a breakin,s !!!!!
