Oh I see. That make more sense. What I meant about clearance with flipper is that if you move the guide straight down(in reference to the flipper), when the flipper is in the up position, it touches the rounded part of the guide. Take a look at the second pic and I think you will see what I mean. It already touches now, but isn't causing rubber wear yet.
I don't think I have the wrong guides installed simply because the guides and plastics match perfectly if you hold them together.
Also, I don't want this to sound like it is unplayable right now. You actually don't notice it when the ball is traveling quickly down the guide. I am just simply trying to get it playing as perfect as possible. I am trying to find out the proper way to dial in the flippers correctly.
