Hello everybody! Finally, after some years, I've finished my Alien Poker! It's missing only the spinner (I'm waiting a new spinner bracket) but for the rest is 100% complete and operative!
The only strange thing in my opinion is the trajectory in the shooting lane: I've thight the screws in the existing holes but the ball cannot reaches the upper playfield. Always acrosses the playfield, then hits the opposite guide and drains near the flippers.
Here some pics of my current situation. Is this space normal between the lanes and the metal post?
The rubber is irrilevant... it is "hidden"...
Thanks to all!!!
Ciaooo

This is the original post I found when I started to disassmble the playfield. The post is metallic (the same post installed on a spare AP playfield) with the mini rubber. On the manual is not written the rubber dimensions.
The ball hits the the guide in its upper part, but the shooting guide is regulated at the max. I cannot bend it down (and it is also covering the black border of the playfield art)

Ok guys... when the ball is launched and cross the playfield, it hits the opposite guide too high so it means I have to adjust down the guide, right? (as per Leesparts suggestion).
But now, my guide is already adjusted at the end of the stroke (down). I can bend it only up... but I think is not the right solution.
When I come back home I will take a picture.

And, what about the post+rubber? Someone with an Alien Poker? Please post some pictures of yours
