Once again Larry has taken apart a game and didn't take pictures. Getting old is tough but beats the alternative. On the whirlwind main ramp under the switch covers, there is a switch bracket. It looks as though the bracket can be assembled in two different ways and it really doesn't matter. The screw would just go in different directions. I would, however, like to do it the original way. As you look at the bracket, one side has 2 holes and the other is completely open. As you stand to play the game, are the two holes on the right or left?

I have no problem with that cc. That is exactly what I needed.

So I know everyone is screaming about Space Shuttle ramps. I have explained in the past why this ramp is a problem for me and how I don't want to sell a ramp until it works. Those of you who have followed me for a while know that when I set a time limit, I'm usually wrong because I failed to anticipate a problem. I have finally sourced the ABS I need to run the ramp. The original Pininc ramp was made with .180 ABS. I am going to try to run .125 this time in hopes of eliminating the biggest of the problems. It will still be thicker than the original. I need three weeks before I can start this project. I will do the ramp next so hopefully, it will be done by the end of the year, maybe sooner. I plan to run it in black and clear.
