Having an issue on my Strikes N Spares where the machine is wanting to send the balls to the right flipper 90% of the time instead of them going to the left flipper 50% of the time. Is there a way to adjust the diverter?

Been a while since I have tinkered since one of these, but I think you have optos that govern these. Chances are one opto thinks it is full OR the other thinks its not full. Going into switch test might be a good place to start. Cold solder joints on these are very common. Good luck. John

Awesome, thank you. I will take a look at it in the next few days and report back. Appreciate the help!

Figured it out. One of the coils had gotten a bit loose and wasn't properly firing through its bracket. Tightened it up, and it appears to be working properly now. I do appreciate the help!

This is a really fun and underrate game!

Very rare machine, 750 made and a lot got parted out to keep other system 3’s going.

I have it running at our charity arcade, folks LOVE it. Easy to understand and so much fun to play.
