Quoted from vid1900:

It's not in your kit, but remember to zip-tie your Capacitor to the bracket.
Now solder the Capacitor to the new EOS switch. The Capacitor has no polarity, that is a fancy way of saying that either lead can go to either terminal of the switch.
The Capacitor helps keep the switch from pitting as much. Yes, you should use it.

Isn't high speed a system 11 game? I went to do the mod and didn't see the bracket or a capacitor:

But the good news is that Lloyd Christmas inspected my game, so I got that going for me, which is nice.

Vid would have had a heart attack if he saw this pin in person. Zip ties, hacks, lube around the spring. I didn't find a wd40 straw, but some some marks of something being spray into the area.

Quoted from nedreud:

I'm not imagining things, am I? That right-hand flipper has the high-current NC leaf switch permanently closed shut with some electrical tape and a zip-tie? If anyone were to hold some balls on that flipper during a multi-ball, or the like, then that is going to be toast pretty quick!

You are correct. It actually worked a little.

Its sad because the guy I bought it from never opened up the pin, so he's never had a good game on it.

Hey Vid, I redid my High Speed and am getting an E.O.S problem on switch 38, thats the upper right flipper. I have this as the only switch on the flipper, is this correct?
