Hey guys, I'm kind of out of my mind here on this. To make a long story short, my right flipper on this game is blowing Fuse 16, which is supposed to be for the top pop bumper.

Heres a run-down of what happened:

I bought the game, and the right flipper was significantly weaker than the left. I could only make the left ramp shot maybe 1/10 times.
The coil looked to be after market, so I bought a replacement along with a complete flipper rebuild kit.

I replaced everything, and soldered the new coil into place. Flipper is still weak. I started looking into why it could be weak, and someone had mentioned that maybe it was engaging the EOS too early. So I adjusted it a bit, but now for some reason I am blowing the F16 fuse every time I engage the right flipper.

I don't know what I could have screwed up, or if it was something I even did.

Any thoughts? All help is definitely appreciated.

Diode on the coil was shorted, but that doesn't explain why the flipper is hitting so weak...Anybody?
