    I'm sure the High Tension spring helped out..

    Well that will be fun to take off.. out comes the grinder

    Here's how I would fix it

    1 of 2 ways

    #1 unscrew the shooter assy and file/grind the shooter rod *outside* the game - keeps shavings out of the game

    #2 pull the shooter, clamp it in the 'pulled' position, and cut the knob off the shooter then carefully release the clamp

    Either of these ways, you don't get a cabinet full of shavings

    I have had a couple of kickbacks that looked similar to that

    wow imagine how the ball was.

    had one exactly like that, pulled the knob, used a vise-grip on the outside, cut the knob, thats what i did.

    How many times do you think you would have to plunge the ball without a shooter tip in order for it to look like that?

    New shooter is the only option. The length after grinding will be significantly shorter.

    That's the Worst I've Ever seen... And that Red Spring lOOk's like The Strongest they make. I've got a bag full.. Is that a HS

    Funny, considering the touch that TZ requires with the short skill shot.

    #12 6 years ago

    Man that is fugly. This pin didnt come from Wizman's collection by chance? I heard he had a sweet TZ.

    Have fun removing that rod.

    #14 6 years ago

    Hack saw it off and get a new shooter. Then vacuum.

    #15 6 years ago

    It's the shooter rod for my project F-14 Tomcat.. Wish it was a TZ..HA!

    #16 6 years ago

    I've cleaned a couple up that were that bad, and been able to reuse them. It wasn't *that* much shorter!

    When I found it it reminded me of Looney Tune cartoons , the old "finger in the end of the gun barrel" gag..
