Short story: removed most parts on my Terminator 2 playfield and cleaned the game. This game is new (to me). When I replaced the old flipper rubber with a new rubber I noticed it was binding and getting caught on the lane guide behind it. After examining the OLD flipper rubber you can see a notch was kind of cut into the rubber (or maybe it slowly wore into it? Looks cut to me).
How do I fix this correctly? I tried tightening down the lane guide several different ways to get it to "move" left but it locks into the same place each time. Unless I am mistaken a flipper can't be moved - the hole is the hole... so what would you all do? Trim the metal part of the lane guide? Clip the rubber like the old one was notched?
