Hi All,

I recently purchased a Williams Black Knight 2000 that was in reasonably good shape. As I got to playing it, I noticed that the upper flipper was weak - weak enough that it can't loop well and can't send a ball up the multi-ball ramp.

So far, I've:
* Installed a new coil and capacitor set from Marco
* Adjusted the EOS switch

I wired the new coil/cap identical to the way it had been, and this may be my problem. The upper flipper doesn't "hold" like the lower ones, but I was to understand that's how the BK2000 is set up from the factory. Regardless, there's just not much "oomph" in the upper deck, making for a rather boring play.

Any ideas? If anyone has a picture of the upper flipper wiring, I'd appreciate it. Attached is a photo of the original wiring, as I received it.

Thanks,
Troy Lanphier

I was wondering about that - the gang switch on the lower right flipper seemed WAY heavy duty for a single flipper. I will give this a shake. Can't tell you how much I appreciate the info!
