    Been trying to find a factory spec for the PF angle in BH and HH. But I dont see any reference to them in the manual.
    Anyone know a factory spec?

    Thanks

    I have never heard of a factory spec for those games. Rear levelers all the way out, front levelers all the way in. The ice cream parlor might tone it down some, but not at the pool hall or bowling alley!

    The issue with angle is having a reverse angle lower playfield. You could drive yourself crazy trying to do them individually.
    To answer the question my HH is at 6.5 degrees and plays fine and I never concerned myself enough to check the lower pf.

    Quoted from Mombo-number-5:

    This..and I still think it needs a bit more. Even at these 'extremes' the lower playfield is fast.

    Also, you might check your legs. The fronts should be 27" and rears 31".

    And while looking at something I found this thread talking about 'notched' shooter area. I have this on my HH and always thought someone had broken it at some point and caused it to be indented. Apparently it was actually designed this way due to the different leg lengths!
