    I’m having trouble getting my lower cannons to work. They function but they don’t hit the ball hard enough to push it to the top. I have had them apart and cleaned. Is there anyone here who can rebuild them? Here’s a pic of one apart. I have a video of function but can’t post it. Any help would be great.

    Did you get any input on your problem?

    He did from me but it was a guess at best.

    I wish I could post a video. In order for the cannon to have a snappy fire it needs a solid moment between the contacts. I can get the snap when I press the leaf switch down with a screw driver but when I let a ball roll down on its own, it doesn’t make the switch enough to fire the cannon completely. It just pushes the ball up and the switch is open again.
