Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Who’s your distributor? I thought I was buying one from GAP but he’s been unresponsive

I got mine two weeks ago from Coin Taker and they probably deliver to Arlington. You’d have to ask. Classic Game Rooms in Georgia has them in stock (at least they did a week ago) and he ships fast, usually with RL Carriers.

Cliff has a whole package for EHOH. It contains the eject protect, shooter alley protect (where the ball hits the wood after bouncing off the eject protect), and drain protectors.

Quoted from jfh:

For those that have gotten the new ball guide kit - did you make any adjustments to the ball gate while you were in there?

I have a November build so asked Stern to ship me the skill shot upgrade kit. I really could tell no difference between the parts I pulled out and the parts I replaced. I still cannot make the skill shot unless I short plunge and hit it just right up the left orbit.

Quoted from dschulpius:

Hi all,
I've had an Elvira HOH for about a month now and love it. It's a perfect mate for my Scared Stiff.
Anyway's I have a couple issues that I can't work out. I've searched this thread and it's so long that I'm having trouble finding the answers if any.
First, I've seen a few mentions about a Skill Shot Ball Guide kit. I don't know if this would help my issue or not. I can't find any posts about the issues I have that it could fix. Perhaps I just haven't looked enough.
Anyway, I have one frustrating issue with the skill shot behind the house. If I plunge the ball too softly the ball will hang up on the gate above the pops that sits behind the right side of the house. I have to shake the pin to get it to drop out into the pops. I've tried to make adjustments by bending the gate but nothing helps. Any advice on how I can fix this or if this kit mentioned helps? If you can point me to this skill shot ball guide kit it would be welcomed. Perhaps I need that anyways.
Secondly, the Dead Head kick out Vac. Sometimes it kicks the ball out OK and other times it will just keep kicking the ball several times before it finally feebly spits the ball out. I've tried to adjust the vac bracket by bending it a little and that helped a little but did not eliminate the problem. Any suggestions on how to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance for any help on these issues.

Hi. After I installed the kit I still could not make the shot. I then got my level out and double checked my pitch and I was just a hair off. Was also a hair off on the balance. Corrected both and now making the unskill shot with some regularity. It has to be a perfect shot though.

Has anyone seen this problem yet? Was trying to search for scoring problems/issues before posting this but could not find anything. All switches test fine. I launch the ball and scoring and VDU go crazy. It will settle down for a while and then go nuts again. Happened after last upgrade. I re-installed the upgrade and no change. Bad node board?
