So I have a Simpsons Pinball Party and I'm having issues with the ball shooting out poorly. Sometimes it hits left bumper, which I understand is correct, and other times it hits the top part of right slingshot. Any ideas on the fix?

Do you have a cliffy installed? If so, it could be interfering with the ball if it's not perfectly flat.

No cliffy but it's on order.

What is the correct kick out of the ball?
Mine shoots straight down the middle.

Should it land on flipper?

If I recall correctly, the steel deflection "guide" above the saucer can be adjusted for shot angle. If it is loose, the kick out can be inconsistent. Mine is fairly consistent with a "shot" about center on the left flipper with the only variation being when two balls get trapped in the saucer.

I heard that it's suppose to hit left flipper and go back to the hole.

You mean the half circle fork that is a part of the vuk? It does seem loose and you can move it side to side. Should it be more stiff?

No. 99% sure they meant the circled bit.

Mine was kicking out into the left sling and annoying me. Loosened that part, turned it a bit so that it was facing the left flipper more and tightened it back down. Fixed it right up.

Do not try to adjust this. Trust me.
