    HI, Working on installing an NOS playfield in my Jet Spin. Question is about the positioning of the adjustable post located at the entrance to the ball return and ball drain lanes. There is an adjustment for conservative or liberal. Problem is my old playfield someone has moved the post so I'm not sure how the game left the factory as there is no virgin dimpled option to indicate their original position. Anybody remember when and if they had the post off their game or any pictures of how your game post is set up?? many thanks

    my game is set up for a tight opening. you tell me the frame of ref. liberal?

    I used to own one but don't remember. Looking at pics of the playfields on the internet including stripped ones, to me it appears they were set up using the liberal position (divots closer to the sides) but I can't verify that for sure.

    Another data point: The Jet Spin manual draws the post solid lines in the upper positions

    Correction, I meant to say the divot positions towards the outside on the side drain posts is the conservative setting. Are the solid lines considered the 'factory' positions? The 'see note' adjustment, looks like it's moving the target itself forward/backward (?)

    Yea, some pictures I have looked at, the sling plastic is in the liberal position and the upper post is in the conservative position.

    Looking at my picture (posts removed).....all in the conservative (factory) positions.
