I finally caved and bought my first pinball! It's a Fireball Classic. I've been able to do a lot of searching and have answered most of my questions, but I still have two questions that are stumping me.
1. The tilt doesn't seem to work at all. I've attached a pic of the assembly below. I've started a game and have physically pushed the plumbob into the brass housing and the game will not tilt. The silver colored weight that's next to the plumb bob works fine. If I get that silver weight to make contact it will shut down the game and restart. If I push the ball on the guide that's on the top of the assembly against the switch on the right, the game doesn't do anything. I'm not sure if these issues are connected at all, but I'd figure I'd give that info anyway.
2. This issue makes me cry. Some fool applied a piece of adhesive foam directly onto the backglass.When the pin is all lit up, this is quite the eyesore. From what I know, backglass artwork is very fragile and I'm very afraid to remove this adhesive foam (maybe I shouldn't remove it at all). I'm afraid that the adhesive backing will pull up the artwork and make it look worse than it does now. Do you guys have any suggestions on how to safely remove this? Should I even take the risk at all?
Thanks in advance! I'm very excited to be a part of this community!
