I have a Last Action Hero pin that has had some modification at some time in it's life. I have been rebuilding/replacing the flippers, switches and coils. This pin currently has a double post flipper switch for the right flipper. Two black wires were twisted together and soldered on one post. The manual calls for a four post switch for the right. I cannot seem to locate a picture indicating the correct wiring. Also, there are only three wires. A picture of the wiring would be very helpful. I have included two pictures. One of the three wires and one of the switches. Original switch (left) next to the four post (right) referenced in the manual. Thanks!

Hmmm There is only one right flipper, So the switch on the left should be the proper switch no need for 2 leaf switch's for one flipper, If there was more then one flipper then the 2 switch's would be needed. How is the left flipper switch wired? The right should be the same. Why change it is the game not functioning properly with it or am I missing something?

The right flipper has been dropping out. This behavior was happening before the coil replacement. I was able to test it by directly touching the leads and the flipper engaged. I believe the issue is the switch. That said, when I ordered a replacement I used the part number listed in the manual - that's what it called for. I agree, seems like the standard two post is sufficient. I want a make sure I was not missing something.
