Ok, so I recently undertook the rather daunting task of re-rubbering my TZ, including the playfield.

First of all let me tell you THAT was not fun.

Everything is back together and spiffy, however, now my mini-playfield has a tilt to the right (meaning the ball rolls to the lower right hand corner and gets stuck).

I've tried loosening the nut that holds the spring assembly on the lower right side, but can't seem to loosen it enough to bring the right side of the mini-playfield up sufficiently to get the ball to roll through the center.

The bracket on the left side is screwed into and flush to the rail. The top brackets are inserted properly.

Suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated.

(And boo to me for not just putting LEDs in while I had the thing apart anyhow)

You should be able to level it using the nut/spring on the right side. Start by making sure everything else is correct, for example be sure the machine as a whole is level, that the mini-pf is seated properly in all other respects.

I just purchased a TZ last weekend. Having same issue. Haven’t taken anything apart yet. I can’t adjust the leveling spring anymore. Its fully extended.
