Have been trying to work through various left flipper issues on my WCS.
Was always weak, first did the Pinball Life flipper rebuild kit with no luck. Then it just died.
Replaced both coils with the OEM ones through Marco Spec. The right flipper is better than ever, left flipper is back to working but is not as strong as its former self.
The first time we turned it on, it worked fine after a game break in period - super strong, felt perfect. Seemed to "warm up". However, that only lasted for 2 games and then it went back to weak.
Sounds OK, but definitely not as powerful as the right. Range of motion is good, if i push it up/down both flippers feel the same. It just has no strength to fire the ball.
I have the technical manual and everything looks good per the OEM diagram assembly wise.
The left coil felt very hot compared to the right after two games. I didn't replace the EOS switches, but the left and right appear OK and both activate at the same point of the stroke.
The flipper button optos seem OK.
Any thoughts? Thanks guys!
