Just starting to clean up a Pool Sharks and need to tackle both drop target assembly mechs, as the targets lower at a snails pace. What’s the best way to remove them? Do I need to desolder the coil, or just remove the coil stop? Should I remove the board from the back of the units? What’s the best way to clean the boards?

Any help / tips would be appreciated for this, as this is uncharted territory for me.

Since its just two,wires I would desolder the coil, unplug the connector and pull the entire assembly off. Makes for much easier work in the long run.

EEE is right remove the 2 coil wires. while you have the entire assembly out you can also replace the coil sleeve ,Inspect the coil stop and clean the plunger.
