Quoted from Tsskinne:
Can I use this new style in my 1978 World Cup, or do I need to order the properly dated rebuild kit from pinball life website?
I upgraded my flash flippers with new mechs. Should be the same with World Cup.
Quoted from vid1900:
When installing the Coil, squeeze the brackets towards each other as you tighten the cap head bolts.
You don't want the coil moving around robbing your game of power. Tight is what you want, no play, no slop.
Doing a flipper rebuild on my High Speed now. Had to replace the coils, but the new coils are like a mm shorter than the factory ones, preventing me from getting the coil in tight. Any idea what I can do?
Quoted from Jeff_PHX_AZ:
This great thread! Really helpful. Did you do this on the PAPA website? It the exact samething thing. Just curious! I cant flip my coils around on my High Speed, its not designed like that and after viewing other peoples High Speeds its the same as mine, coil lugs same side as coil stop. Gonna do the updated spring hook up. Thanks.
Recently rebuilt mine and discovered this as well. Came to the conclusion that I'd need new bases in order to update the springs, and new bracket in order to reverse the coil. I had already decided to sell mine, so decided to just keep it like it came from the factory.
