My scoop was occasionally throwing the ball right down the middle. I made some minor adjustments to the kicker and scoop position and it no longer does this.

The best I've been able to do is get the scoop to throw the ball to the tip of the right flipper. Is this how other TOTAN's behave? Would be nice to get the ball delivered closer to the sweet spot of the right flipper, but maybe that isn't how it's designed. Note: the scoop is in great condition and no welds are broken.

Thanks for any help.

Steve: mine will consistently deliver the ball to a range between the middle of the right flipper and the bushing of the right flipper itself (with the right flipper at rest).

Perhaps check the tip of your armature for wear?

Good luck in the tweak.

Thanks Neil. Armature looked fine, but still didn't look aligned properly. The tip is concave, so if it isn't aligned properly with the scoop/ball, it's not going to throw the ball precisely.

I bent the coil bracket to align the armature and it's hitting the right flipper ~1" from the tip now. This is definitely an improvement and plays well. Still doesn't seem consistent with yours. Would be interesting to get a couple more data points to better understand how it's suppose to behave
