when i bought pinbot, one of the flippers worked excellent and the other not so much.

looking under, it had a brand new flipper assembly on the good side, and an original assembly on the other side... so i decided to buy a new assembly...

now the new assembly only has one switch, while the original has two... did i buy the wrong assembly (it was labeled for pinbot)?

does not look like i can make it fit either from the old to the new...

any help would be much appreciated.

The second, outer switch is for lane change or something like that. From here it looks like it should fit fine? Just take the outer switch (and two screws) from the old one and stick them on the new one

Yep, just move that 2nd switch to the new assembly.

Clean the switch contacts by drawing a crisp $100 bill through the gently held together switch.

When the bill comes out clean, the contacts are clean.

Are $100 bills better than $50s?

well it worked... non identical parts threw me off a little... now i have a pair of awesome flippers!

thank you!!!

except for the $100 bill trick to clean the contacts... i guess CAD (plastic money) does not work the same as USD...

got them clean anyways
