Recently picked up a SST;s in a bulk lot and got to say, very fun game. Unfortunately i am having issues with the ball launching into play tho. I've managed to fix it to be ok when i launch using the plunger, but when multiball happens, or any time the aut launch coild mech is required, 7/10 times the ball launches with nt enough power to kick the ball into the upper part of the playfield and into play -so the ball ends up drainging immediately on the far right drain. Super annoying
I have pulled the mech apart and cleaned the coil sleeve up a lot (did not quite have that size availabe). cleaned the mech, the coil, & used novus on playfield in the trough launch portion.I noticed that the U shaped kicker that comes up through the playfield was a bit out of shape, and done my best to re-shape it.
Anyone have any ideass what the issue is? Is it most likely still the U shaped kicker or another part of the mech slightly out of position? The arm on the kicker also seems a little loos so it sits a bit off centre. anyone experienced this before and what was it they tweaked to get it right?
