Good evening to all
1975 Gottlieb Eldorado!

I just conducted 2 flipper rebuilds on the two main lower flippers. I also installed to new orange for coils for a bit more power with new sleeves.. Left flipper works well, right Flipper really weak? I fooled around a bit more and for a goof I put yellow dot coil on the left flipper to see if it does anything? It did nothing still a weak flipper after a rebuild. What gives???

You may have the flipper windings reversed so that the low power winding is trying to kick instead of the high power winding. The normally closed EOS (End of Stroke) switch should connect to the two solder lugs with thin copper wires, which are the two ends of the low power coil. The two lugs with thick copper wires are the two ends of the high power winding. One of the solder lugs will have one of each (thin and thick) wire.
