Quoted from huo:
Just got a nice Getaway recently and finally. Everything shoots nice and I'm able to do loops. But I'm not able to loop and go up the ramp. I did vacuum, novus 2 & wax and new balls. The upper flipper seems to flip fine. Currently at 6.5 degrees. Anyone else not able to make it up the ramp?
Sorry, but could you please explain in a little more detail. Are you saying that when you catch a ball with your right lower flipper and hit the left side of the loop with the ramp down that it will not make it to the ball lock?
Or the answer is yes to that them my first place to look would be at the coil assembly. Make sure there is no binding at all when the flipper is activated (do it by hand from above and below the playfield with machine off). If the joints don’t move freely or too freely to where they bind then make the necessary righting or loosening adjustment on the bolts/nuts. Also check by feel if the rod slides easily in/out of the coil sleeve to make sure the coil has not swollen.
Could be other electrical causes, but above has solved some of my flipper issues with the limited experience I have.
Finally, if you can’t resolve a video might me good to illustrate your issue.
