Soldered the mixed wires to their rightful places and tried again. Seller told me that the pedal might have had an incident where it was fed a wrong polarity.
Since the design doesn’t incorporate any sort of polarity protection as it’s meant to be used with battery only, one of the previous owners drilled a hole to the front panel to place a battery adapter to original battery snap. All the components measured correct, except for the UA741 opamp.
I measured the switch, and while it was a bit wonky, it worked.
