I continue to try to dial in my upper flipper.
When the pf is up the flipper has no resistance and is perfect. But when the pf is down the weight of the long flipper pushes the link to drop some and it does not have the same ease moving in and out of the coil.( My bushing is new, as are all the flipper parts ). Is this the nature of the upper flipper ?
With the length of the flipper shaft assembly, I have found that not all bushings are created equal. I have had to try several different bushings, with different amounts of play. I also found it helpful to leave a bit more clearance between the bushing and where the shaft clamps to the flipper assembly. It's unnatural, as it feels like the whole flipper shaft is "wobbly" but that extra bit of play really helps (in my game) to smooth out the stroke of the flipper. Just make sure that the bat is not rubbing on the ramp and see if that helps.
