Quoted from Mantra:

I rebuilt all three of mine when I restored it no problem hitting ramps now.

Same here.

Quoted from smokey_789:

Manual calls out FL11629 for lower left flipper. Didn't see any spec for the lower and upper right flippers but mine have FL17636 coils on them. Is this correct?

See page 2-44 of the manual: specifies all 3 flips get a blue 11629.

Prototypes, test models, and likely some early production games had coils that were stronger than FL-11629s: they used FL-17636s--but those are the strongest coils Williams made; they break stuff--so regular production games used blue 11629s.

Just rebuild all 3 flips (squeeze the coil HARD to the stop bracket when rebuilding/torqueing the Allen screws to remove any gap), correctly level the game, and install the recommended 11629s.
