The ball 7 drop target when hit will make ball 7 and ball 9 droptarget fall..just as it should. When hitting ball 9 droptarget ball 7 droptarget should go down but it wont.

There are 2 switches on each droptarget, one in front and one back the drop target. The front switch is connected to the backswitch on opposit droptarget. The switch to the diods works and the diods are all good. The only thing I can see here is that the frontswitch on the ball 7 is a tad rusty on the luggs. When jump wiering the switches it is still the same so I guess that cut outs broken wiers.

Any ideas? Bad switch? Its the backswitch on ball 9 that should activate this I do think.

There are little actuator coils to drop the target.
Those are driven via the switch on the other drop target.
Coil may be bad or the switch broken or bad.

How do these little coils looks like? I cant find anything looking like a coil near the droptargets..except the normal one in games

They are small flat coils and are mounted inside the drop target assembly at the top. I have a Pinball Pool torn down right now so I will take a picture and post in a little bit.

They are on top of the mech between it and the playfield, you really need to take the mech off the playfield to see them although if you look in from the edge you should be able spot them.
