I'm restoring a Stern Electronics Stampede pin, # 2544. I've noticed in the brochures that it mentions that there is a captive ball on the left side, leading up to the Horse Shoe. My machine doesn't have this. Is it a common practice to remove this feature sometimes? Do they wear out? Has anyone put this feature back in? The machine plays fine without it, except sometimes after hitting the Horse Shoe the ball will go straight down the center right between the flippers. I've seen pictures on the internet, some with, and some without.

Thanks for any insight.

Here's a picture of what that looks like from IPDB. I've not seen a captive ball area designed like this before and can see why that gate looking thing would take a lot of abuse and break. If you hit the gate on the right, does that fling the captive ball up to the target? If it does, I can see why yours is missing as it probably broke. I probably would leave it out as it doesn't seem like a good design to me.

I would put it back in if i were you. I'm sure those gates got beat up pretty good on route, but for home use they'll last a long time. I think its a cool shot myself.
