Im having an issue with my Bally Game Show. If the ball goes up the left loop the gate registers the ball hitting the loop. If the ball goes up the right loop the game doesnt register the ball hitting that shot. It appears to be a 2 way gate thats only registering one way. Any ideas? Thanks

I think this actually has to do with the spinner and how its rubbing against the rail. Can someone kindly take a picture of their spinner so i can see how it's set up? Thanks

Yes thank you…interestingly insteadnofnthat red post you have near the spinner i have a guiderail. The guiderail was touching the spinner arm and keeping it from moving freely so i adjusted it

That is interesting. It looks like it may have been removed from my machine based on the parts diagram. Care to share a picture of yours?

Not sure I can see it, but thanks for posting. Mine seems to shoot pretty well without it, so I’ll probably leave well enough alone.
