Quoted from Slash:
Had a couple of alignment queries after my restoration and playfield swap.
The right orbit shot - I understand this is supposed to end up hitting the low pressure pops, not go straight through them and onto the flippers (or SDTM quite often). My question is which bumper is it supposed to hit first or should it hit the post and rubber at the end of the metal guide that it feeds around?
The kickout from the cellar - should this land straight onto the left flipper or should it hit the left slingshot?
A full plunge from the shooter lane - mine goes part way up the left ramp then rolls back down, is this where it should be or should it go around the inside orbit? I know the skill shot should hit the 3 bank drop targets, but I just wondered where a full plunge should end up?[quoted image][quoted image]
Right orbit: On my stock playfield - always low press pops but I can't recall exactly where it hit. On the repro mirco playfield (before adjustment it went straight down the middle) a majority of the time it hits the left pop. If the ball is slow coming out of the orbit it might catch the rubber at the end of the ball guide and hit the lower right pop or come out of the area without touching a pop, either SDTM or to the flipper.
Kickout from cellar: I don't recall the original playfield action. On the repro most of the time it barely grazes the top of the left sling near the post and then on to the left flipper. Sling does not activate. Occasionally it will miss the left sling and go straight to the flipper.
A full plunge from the shooter lane: On the original it went to the left orbit ("SW"). If I hit the plunger instead of pulling it would go partially up the left ramp. On the repro, I adjusted so it goes to the left orbit on the full plunge. I was never able to reproduce the ball partially going up the left ramp with a plunger smack on the mirco field, it always goes to the left orbit.
