Quoted from Jimmyapple:
Anyone know of a thread or post that highlights what a new owner should do for an LE? Tweaks and needed mods(needed being key word)? And yes I will go through the 72 page thread here but there is a lot of fluff and pissed off people getting an LE and would rather learn from others than figure out through frustration. Advice is welcome too. Figured by now someone had to put a list together and trying to find. Everyone says this is a great game once you get it dialed in. I just don’t know what that means.
Adjust height of drop targets
Adjust spring on drop targets (20-25 coils up)
Check & change balls
SLIMER butt nut - check slimer positions and butt nut
Put a washer under right ball guide (blue rubber bumper) to help playfield damage
Put mylarr down - where the ball lands when shot out. Or install Cliffy's
Get the green spring for the manual shooter rod, and the high compression spring for the auto-launcher
Install the plastic air ball protector and right orbit protector (GET THE ONE I MAKE
Adjust the coil power in the service menu ADJ > G.B. > Feature Adjustment #11 - Trough Eject Power. Mine is set the lowest power 176
Check 14th street subway switch to make sure ball is changing swithc state
Ball guide rod 1/4" higher - hit with hammer (behind each sling shot area - this prevents ball jumping in the drain areas)
Hex spacer 1 5/8" (or 1 3/4") - change this on the right plastic 1/2 circle ramp (this shorter hex makes it easier for ball to go up).
