Hi all,

I'm just wrapping up my Spanish Eyes project. changing lamps, touching up paint etc.

I was playing a game today (one of several) when the right flipper suddenly got weak and started to chatter.

I checked and readjusted the EOS. the flipper appeared strong, so I lowered the pf. It happened again. This time I noticed that the bat was loose, so I placed it where it should be and tightened to down. Now the flipper was playing strong, but the flipper travel was now about 1/2" short. I can't figure out why. I've since checked the plunger, coil stop, changed the coil sleeve and reassembled the flipper. the throw is still too short. In order to compensate, I had to move the stop bracket about 1/2" from where it was. While that's fixed the issue, it doesn't explain what happened.

Has anyone else seen anything along these lines?

Is there any play in the link where it joins to the crank or plunger?
