Adding more pictures… any advice on where sw44 is supposed to sit and how?

Hey, ok, I couldn't find any of my own pics to show you so I tried to use one of yours. Yours are good too, thanks for adding those.
Ok, so all four of those switches you mentioned should show as open in test mode. The first three that are ok in your test are the ball lock ones, lined-up for when multiball is ready. The fourth one, SW44, is this one I'm circling in GREEN. While those other three switches have the long, skinny arm that physically contacts the ball as it goes by in the subway, the SW44 micro-switch arm does not. It is oddly enough already in the correct position where you see it. The idea is for that VUK (vertical up kicker) forked looking end thing to push down on the switch blade when a ball is in there.
What I think has happened is that screw end that I was really trying to circle in the photo, has actually gone behind the plastic base of the switch instead of through the hole in it. Can you see what I mean? There are two screws holding it in place and that tiny metal bar acts as your nut(s). See how it isn't straight? If you tipped the switch base down so that it lines up with where the screw is, and then that screw goes through the second hole in the switch base, the switch blade will have to also rotate down (or to the right in the photo) and then it will give you the movement needed. Because right now it is already all the way down and is triggering the switch, which it shouldn't be doing when there is no ball in there.
Let me know if that makes sense. Probably too wordy on what I wrote. Hopefully you get what I mean. Basically just take that one screw out (and likely need to loosen the other one), rotate the switch down slightly so you can reinsert that screw through the switch base and then tighten it all back up and you should be good.ToM VUK switch position (resized).jpg
