I am now having issues with my ball trough on gnr. I adjust the arms of the six switches along with the switch close to the ball launch. This fixes the issue for the short term, but inivedably the issues come back. Order all new switches? I don't mind putting money into it and getting it fixed. Gnr might be my favorite game and I need her running on all cylinders. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Spent all morning screwing around with this GD ball trough. It's driving me mad. Brand new switches and diodes don't do anything for my machine. Sure seems to me that I have to bend the arm of the switch just right otherwise it doesn't work.

After putting in new switches and diodes, I fired it up and it spit out three balls. Clearly the arms need to be bent up otherwise they just slide down to the eject spot. So, I bend em up and then it can't sense the ball has drained. I'm ready to call a tech and spend whatever it takes to get this fixed because it's driving me bananas.

Don't want to declare victory yet, but I went through the switches again and replaced some of the new switches that I wasn't happy with. Long story short, after about ten games, it seems to be working well.

The ball trough caused me to snap tonight. There are divots there which must be causing the balls to not sit properly. I will be taking the entire thing out and replacing evening including the trough. So maddening.

I'm going to try to smooth out the divots. See if that makes any difference. I'll report back since I'm guessing I'm not the only one having issues with this.

Sanded the divots like crazy and also cleaned the coil that allows one ball at a time to advance. Mine was quite sludged up from years of sitting.

Not declaring victory yet but it sure seemed to run perfectly for a few quick games.

If this doesn't work, I'll order the above referenced new trough.

Check your ball trough for dimples before replacing all the switches. For me, sanding the dimples out of the ball trough got me up and going. I highly encourage checking this first. Easy to do.
