Just picked up a F2K last week that is in pretty nice shape but there were mismatched drops in the countdown bank and one of them (#4) was broken completely off. I ordered a new set from Steve at Pinball Resource and installed them tonight. I am having an issue with the bank sequence and resetting. I've attached a link to a video I took tonight that illustrates what is going wrong. Here it is:
For the record, these drops have acted like this since I got the game and this is not something that started after I replaced the targets tonight. Also, not all targets in this bank have the same kind of spring. There are two types on these - one longer than the other. I found replacements for them at PinballLife tonight and I am going to order some just to get five new ones on and make sure that they are all the same.
This is my first experience with drops, so any advice you guys might have as to how to improve the performance of these would be greatly appreciated. Tomorrow I will double check to make sure they all have the springs hooked on in the same manner. I'm pretty sure they do.
