Can someone confirm that the spinner switches on early Bally / Stern machines (Flight 2000 in this particular case) are normally open, ie when the spinner is at rest?

The machine I picked up has a new CPR playfield in and I think the previous owner mounted the switches upside down because they're closed at rest...

thanks !

Mine are open on Paragon and Space Invaders

On all of our Ballys the spinner switch is always open. Longer leg of the switch with the hole in it for the hook/loop on the wireform passing through the playfield is below and lifts to create closed when the spinnner goes around.

Cool, thanks! Confirmed my suspicion - the switches on mine are upside down

Nice to have an easy fix for a change
