Hi there Popeye fans! I bought one recently and it needed some work, but now she's working 100% and the only complaint that I really had was the success rate of the swee-pea ramp shots. With the stock rubbers in place, getting the ball through was annoyingly rare due to rubber bounce backs. I removed the rubbers on the two ramp posts and slid some snippings from a drinking straw in their place. The result is nothing short of a startling difference. The upper playfield fun factor just went way up. I thought I'd share this ultra cheap mod with you in case you want to try it. I've got the stock flippers and this mod cures my only complaint with the game. I love my Popeye!
