Yeah... I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to electronics, so when it comes to faults I can just about figure out the logic of things.
Nice going on finding a fix for the errors in my ways. Will have to revisit the design once I get a semblance of a hobby workshop up and running again 😀

The 47K resistor in the wired-OR is great for CMOS logic but TTL, even
LS TTL, draws more current. A quick check of a data sheet shows input
current when Vin=0.4V of -0.4mA. Which will create quite the voltage
drop on a 47K resistor.
You could lower that resistance but I can't help but be horrified by the
use of LS TTL with an 1802. 74HC or HCT if you must but please not LS.
