Sorry for all the questions, but here' a new one. Sometimes the rollover target will score just from the pop bumpers (maybe from the vibration?), but other times the ball rolls right over it and doesn't score. It just started doing this a few days ago (it worked fine before that). Any ideas?

Well a good way to test switches like that is to just bang on the PF and see if the switch keeps registering. Either ay you gotta get under there and take a look at how the switch is being activated...they can be touchy.

You might as well replace the .047/.05 microfarad cap across the switch if you're going under there.

I cleaned the contacts and put a larger gap in the switch. Seems to have resolved it. Thanks!

How did you clean the switch? Those original switches had a micro fine gold plating that is easily removed if sanded. The safe way to clean is to rund a business card or dollar bill through them.

I used alcohol pads. All of the dirt came off pretty easily.
