Hi Pinside,

I am almost finished with this Fun Land. Nothing working when I got it. I've almost got it 100 % working.

Last problem. The ball is getting stuck on the spinner. Any tips on how to adjust the tension so this doesn't happen anymore?

Thanks.

Dan

It looks like the brackets that the spinner shaft sit in are bent and the spinner is sitting a little low.

Quoted from hazmat7719:

This is it. You need to straighten the brackets to raise the spinner up. Also, make the wire have nice 90 degree bends. Also, polish the wire and add a tiny bit of lubricant. Check the spinner in this picture closely.

Thanks. @hazmat7719 and @John_I. I was making it more complicated than it had to be. Bent bracket. Cleaned up wire applied a small amount of super lube and it's been running great! This was my first major undertaking of an EM. Great feeling to have it running so great!

Hey there! Got a moment?
