Quoted from chuckwurt:

Great post. I just had the same issue on a rebuild I did with WPC flippers. Wasn’t the suppliers fault, I grabbed one from my bin that was too short, but same issue.

Would this ever cause a flipper to stick?

Quoted from vid1900:

Wrong size flipper bushings will stick from misalignment

How about old, tarnished EOS switches? I operated the mechanism by hand and it's moving perfectly.

Quoted from vid1900:

Easy enough to loosen and move it out of the way to test the theory.
DONT hold the flipper button, just flip and see if she sticks.

Yep - she does. I have a new switch in the mail. Should be here any minute now.
