Quoted from TheRingMaster:

Thanks for the info on the posts guys =)
I think the one on the mini pf is some sort of last minute correction. Like the ball can get stuck there if it's abscent. Wonder if it's possible but it's the only explanation I can think of.
I have another one for you too; at the base of the heart beat ramp there is a screw holding it to the black wood rail (shooter lane inner wood). I wonder if the ramp is supposed to get bent by this screw, mine do get bent a little and it feels it puts a bit too much stress on the ramp to be comfortable.. Am I missing like a spacer there or should the ramp lean to the right to make it easier for the ball to reach the shooter lane again if it takes the right lane from the mini pf?
Well.. Will update more as soon as I can. I'm in the middle of another work project right now so the hours are crazy.

Mine also puts stress in this area, the old ramps were all cracked and broken there and the new ramps were a bit bent if I tightened them down all the way. I was also thinking of putting a space in that location.
Another BoP in my area that is on location at a bar is in bad shape and completely broken in that location, so I imagine it is normal to have stress there but I see no reason why it needs to be like that.

Hey. Your rubber configurations seems a bit off? Check the top right section. This picture is from the HEP website.

These are taken from my original Manual (not a reprint) .... any place in the manual that shows the upper playfield rubbers this is how it looks. There are many different ways that the rubbers could be run for sure but I like the original way the best.

Well the time has come to start on my BoP restoration .... I am so nervous to take everything off under that playfield.
