I'm a novice/hobbiest and was trying to help a friend fix a flipper on his Data East Star Wars machine. First time I've ever worked on a Data East machine. Upon lifting up the playfield, I found two brass-colored brackets -- about 10" long with a loop at one end -- lying in the bottom of the machine, and I can see where they were torn off the bottom of the playfield. So my question is, are these just support brackets for when working on the machine, or do they serve some other function? Sorry if this has been asked before.
Attached is a photo (after I re-attached to the playfield).
