Two small issues I worked on this evening.
1. As shown in the prior post, I added the 7 characters around the playfield using Quake Hold - earthquake putty. It does a great job on flat surfaces. But Fred was on a surface that pitched forward. He kept falling off. Now I am trying a small square velcro to hold him down. It should be reversible.
2. When I replaced the pin assembly, it worked great and the pins moved correctly. But once in place, the loop of the ramp was sitting on the metal plate and causing the tops that go through the assembly to be pressed in place and not move. It didn't really affect the targets but they just were stuck in place.
I placed a 1 inch felt pad about 3/16" tall on the metal plate in front of the right most pin so the pin moves freely. This provides the clearance such that the ramp does not press down on the tops of the pins so they can rock back and forth smoothly.
