Good call MOF. Black Knight has a special place in my heart as well. It was the game I played most back in the 80's in the arcades. I just picked up one a couple of months ago and am currently restoring it. It's almost ready...to ride! Great classic game!

Quoted from mof:

Huge Victory.
I haven't done the vid1900 flipper repair just yet on my upper or lower flippers on BK. But when I rebuilt the flippers on my Cyclone, I learned the importance of sustained tight contact while CLOSED for maximum flipper strength. I was thinking, "Wait a second, maybe I can make my BK lower right flipper stronger to make the long ramp shot... My problem is I like a fast table, so I have the pitch set at 6.5-6.7 or so, and I can only make the ramp in 1/4 shots -- the shot has to be perfect. Now I can make it more like 2/5 times, and that's a big difference. The spinner seems to take so much out of the shot.
So, the victory is in finally learning how to get more power out of the flippers by making a small adjustment. I also sanded the flipper button switches for best contact, and I discovered very quickly how tricky it is to set up the flipper switches well so that the upper flippers move JUST after the bottom flippers do. For a while I was getting the lowers only. Very tricky business. But I finally got it back into a good spot. I think my game is playing better now after all the tinkering.

Nice job MOF. I had to do the same thing...fine-tune the cab switches and the EOS switches. Makes a huge difference. Also put a small amount of 3-in-1 oil on the spinner where metal meets metal and that sucker will spin like crazy and not slow down your ball as much too.

Quoted from mof:

I would hate any oil to splatter onto the PF, so I won't use any above the PF. I'll have to run a few tests first to prove the before/after is a success.

The tiny bit of oil is not going to splatter. Just put a tiny dab on the tip of a toothpick, then contact that to where the spinner meets the spinner frame. This is about the only place I use oil on any of my games. But it really makes a big difference.
