    Did you replace the bushing that goes through the playfield? If not could be worn weird. If you did it could be installed improperly.

    Did you gap the flipper from the pf properly?

    Look to see if the flipper rubber is binding on the inlane guide.

    Did you change the coil sleeves?

    Check voltage at the coil not the button.

    Check the wiring on the coil to make sure it is correct. Previous owner could have the lugs wrong.

    That’s all I got.

    When it’s up gravity is helping the flipper so that’s not always a great indicator.

    I can’t remember if the power goes to the upper flipper first or second but if the other one is working right it’s prob not a cabinet connector issue. But I guess there is a connector between the pfs. So need to Check it I guess.

    Are the coil leads good? Maybe you have a broken wire on the coil? Have you check resistance on it?

    If you are really stuck, swap upper and lower assembly and see what changes.
