    I know, NO LUBRICATION of pinball parts! Well - most of the time. The Williams manual says that the ball kicker in picture should be lubed at two points and they show the two points but they don't say what type of lubricant to use. So which one is best folks? I have teflon grease, multi-purpose oil, gun oil, etc etc. Thanks a lot. I am leaning towards the teflon grease.

    Wow! Awesome response and advice from everyone!! Thanks so much. This is why I just love this group. Helpful and the simplest question leads to discussion with so much more information.

    Wolfmarsh maybe we can get together some time and talk pinball!

    Anyway, my part (ball kicker) was pretty gummed up so I removed it and put it in my Harbor Freight ultrasonic cleaner (tip from another pinsider!) and that cleaned it up nicely. I pulled the retaining pin and pulled the shaft out and lightly lubricated it with Super Lube (another pinsider tip!) put it back and all is right with the world! Got a long way to go to finish the machine, a Pinbot, that was incredibly dirty and has some water damage.

    Thanks again everyone and best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for all the help from my fellow Pinsiders!
