Quoted from pocketscience:
Hit a snag with mine. Sample machine, so has different flipper mechs (uses the thicker shaft ones like Surf Champ etc). Holes on new PF too small. Drill out new PF or try to source and retro fit, including changing wiring layout to match production config? Wade has suggested maybe trying to fit thinner diameter flippers to the existing mech. Anyone done that?
Also is anyone putting mylar protectors under the pops? Wondering whether wax alone will be enough..
that sucks! i have both and I NEVER even thought about the sample mechs not fitting.
i would not drill the new pf. i would just convert it to the old style. you only need a few parts to do it. you might have to extend wiring i am sure. if i can help with parts let me know.
