I am getting ready to release Whirlwind lift ramps. All I'm missing is the flap. I have two sample ramps and they are different. The problem is with the 2 guide brackets. One has one of the brackets above the ramp and another has them both under the ramp. I believe the second configuration is correct but I'm not positive. To make matters worse one ramp has one flat and one offset bracket. The other has 2 offset brackets. I would appreciate if 6 of you would let me know how yours is setup. A picture would be OK too. TIA for helping me get this right.

Thanks. What I need is hard to see in the pictures. The ramp has 4 parts not counting the plastic. A hinge, a flap and 2 guide rails. Are the guide rails both underneath the plastic?

Hi lrosent345 On my Whirlwind both "guide rails" are underneath the plastic ramp. See attached picture and let me know if you need any more details.

Can't wait to get a replacement lift ramp! Glad I procrastinated on properly riveting the lift ramp to the newer main ramp that had been previously installed in my machine...

Can you post a picture of what you want to see? Is it what Mike_M last posted?

I've had enough responses. The vast majority of responses confirmed that in almost all games both metal guides are underneath the plastic. Mike: how did you add the comment to that jpeg?

I just added that via the built-in "Preview" app on Mac OS - Tools > Annotate > Speech Bubble.

Can you let us know when they're available on the website? Also- not sure if you'll be at TPF but if so will they be available there?

Doesn't the ball hop around when it hits those raised screw heads?

Yep. It was that way when I got it. Fixing that was on my to-do list but I'm glad I waited, since now I can replace the lift ramp at the same time.

The rivets are close enough to the edge that the ball misses them.
