So i decided to treat my hotdoggin with a full new set of drop targets from PBR (4+3+3) and after a couple hours to take appart all 3 assemblies and put them back on i can get the top of the target flush with the PF...

I do not find a way to adjust the height of the target, i feel like the position of the hole at the bottom of the drop target is slightly higher than on the old ones i replaced. the metal arm lower position is fixed by the bottom of the assembly (near the SW) but that cannot be adjusted.
Is the issue with the PBR drop target? Any way to adjust this without hacksaw the slot deeper for the arm to drop lower?
am i missing something?

The whole bottom plate should be able to slide up and down if you loosen it.

Only bottom plates of this design are adjustable.

Can you put a spacer between the playfield and the whole drop target assembly to lower it a little ?

yeah it does not look like the plate is adjustable, it screws on the main assembly, no real adjustment.

Lowering assembly maybe a good idea, some of these post rubbers maybe? Like the CFTBL window... it's either that or filling the divot where the crank goes down to make it lower...
those drop target side to side with the old one do look pretty different, i am going to have to check with PBR what are their thoughts on this...

Unless your drops are different than the ones on the Hotdoggin I worked on, there is definitely an adjustment. Sadly I don't have access to it anymore to describe better...

Ding ding ding! Madmax was right! somewhow whoever have worked on the assembly before me had them all reversed, all good now!

Also once reversed, the inline drop target can indeed be adjusted to make sure they are perfectly aligned. one common plate for all 3 targets but still worked, thanks all!
