Hey there,

I've been experiencing a rather annoying problem where if a soft enough plunge is made from the left plunger up the flying rocks ramp, the ball will hit Ted in the head (for 25 000 000) and then stay there due to the ramp not being steep enough. A sharp nudge will send the ball back, but results in a number of tilt warnings.

So my question is: where and what do I adjust to steepen this ramp?

Cheers, Tom

Its probably not the wireform the switch is probably out to far making the ball hang up I had the same issue. Bend the arm so its as far back as it can be and still register. You sld be going for the other prizes tho lol.

Cheers for the suggestion.

It's definitely not the switch though, had a good long fiddle and it and confirmed it was the pitch. I might pull that side of the machine apart and put a spacer in to heighten it.

I had this problem,
I put a spacer under the ramp to bring it up a bit!
my pitch is 6.5

Cheers urbanledge!

I'll have a look at it tomorrow. Did you put the spacer under the support next to ted's head?

I have a roadshow and found the odd time my ball would hang up at the head. Found changing the blue rubber bumper solved the problem. Seems that age has dried it out and that a new one gave it a bit of a spring back to stop this problem.

I have a new rubber on order too.
