Hi All Pinsters

On my Addams Family, when Thing picks the ball up and takes it
into his box - the ball catches the Lane Guide under the box lid.
After a short stutter he does take it into the box and everything
works as it should, but it would seem better if he was lifting just
1/3 inch higher to stop this happening.

Also, he catches the guide when he puts the ball back too.

I've taken Thing out and can't see any easy way to make him higher.
The coil is (i think) as far down his sleeve as possible - the magnet tip
is screwed in as far as possible, and by the way he sits on the motor
mechanism there is no way to pack in washers to raise him that way
as he screws into the underside meaning packing would lower him.

Any suggestions? I'm guessing this is quite a common problem.

Thanks in advance
