Sounds like the solenoids are intermittent... given the wide range of the problem and the age of the things, I suggest you change out all 5.

Personally, I have a 1986 resistor cart that has given me nothing but headaches and I'm not messing with the resistors any more. Every time I fix something, something else breaks because of the age of the parts.

I'm going to get a conversion kit from Scotty as soon as the funds are available to get rid of the resistor set up and bring it into a more reliable configuration.

If you like the cart, that's what I would honestly reccommend.
