When the visor standup target assembly is moving, it often goes up and down in a crooked fashion. First, one side starts to drop slightly earlier than the other, then the targets drop, and are flush to the playfield.
When the visor targets are coming back up, it's the same thing, but in reverse. The other side goes up slightly crooked and then comes to its resting position; however, the yellow side (left) is visibly lower than the red side (right).
I watched a video on YouTube and the visor moved up and down smoothly and non-crooked so I do believe I can get this working better than it is. When I disassembled the visor target assembly, I noticed a couple of things and was hoping someone with a known-good assembly can check their machine:
• There is some left-to-right slack in the carrier assembly as it slides in the guide (the black plastic and white retainer plastics that hold it in place (mounted to the metal L brackets)
• The motor has a bushing that goes from the mounted stub on the rotating wheel and sits in an oblong round cavity on the carrier assembly. There appears to be a substantial amount of slack between the bushing and the cavity. Is this normal?
This machine was on a route and at some point a tech decided that grease would be a good idea. It took a while to degrease the entire assembly (and also fix a couple of the target plastics at the same time) -- while the end result looks improved, the movement is really goofy looking. Any ideas on how to 'tune' this up?
Thanks in advance.
