my TZ right flipper keeps on binding. I'm not sure if its the coil that's locking up or the flipper mechanism that's binding. My flipper will stay up for a second or two each stroke. How can I fix this?

Your first thought to narrow down where the problem is will help. Operate the left and right flippers manually with your finger with the machine off through the coin door (don't lift the playfield - that can obscure problems and convolute your investigation). See if you notice a difference and if you can reproduce, and identify it it's mechanical.
