Rebuilding the flippers on my Pinbot rescue. It's been playing fine, but I like to have the original travel without slop and worn coil stops, etc., and had every reason to think the original parts were still there.
To my surprise it turns out that the coils were different as a result of work done before I got it.
One is a 23-600. The other is a 30-750. Both are OEM Williams blue-label coils.
So in theory, the larger wire with fewer windings (23-600), should have been stronger. But it didn't seem to be noticeably so to me. Apparent response and speed was the same. Can't say I noticed any playability issues. So does it just happen that the smaller wire with more windings (30-750) average out pretty close to identical, performance wise?
Complicating my situation somewhat: the game manual calls for 23-600. But the one in my game overheated at some point and trying to replace the sleeve was very difficult now the new plungers do not fit or operate nicely. But the 30-750 in the game is just fine, AND I happen to have a spare 30-750 as well... although it's a Pincoil "Yellow Label" and supposedly yellow means "weak". So I could have a matched pair by spec, but not by color or conventional wisdom, nor what the manual calls for. Sigh.
At any rate, how much would this affect the game?
