    Hi

    Be gentle it's my first pin and I have no idea how it all really works. I have a pinbot and I have taken some of the playfield off as it is very dirty and needs a clean. I have numerous questions is it best to list them all in one post or split them up. My first question would be that I have discovered that the two balls are of different sizes. I presume this is not right. What is the correct size?

    Post a photo of the balls next to a quarter.

    Just list all your questions and I'm sure you'll get quick answers.

    1 1/16" is the standard pinball size. If you don't have inches over there use 27 mm, it's pretty close.

    If you discover you have a 15/16" ball it probably came from a roll tilt mechanism. Bingo pinballs are typically 1 1/8".

    Thanks. I dont have a quarter unfortunately but I can measure in mm.

    The visor on pinbot doesnt close fully it seems to catch on the rubber of the right hand star post. Is there a way to adjust it left and right there is more clearance on the left.

    Also with the visor I seem to have a post and a hole on the left that isnt the same as other pics I've seen.

    Also. I have a new plastics set to put on. How do I transfer the amber covers for the flashes from the old set to the new set. Until I took the old pkastics off I presumed they would be screws but they see to be some sort of rivet.

    Drill out rivets and replace with rivets to new plastic or if you cannot rivet you can use a small screw and nut...
    The last option is not notice to the eye when you have your game back together
