Purchased my Champagne Fire recently. Previous owner verified he had replaced rt flipper coil prior to purchase. Upon start up, the right flipper stuck up immediately. It did not go back down when turned off, so mechanical issue. Discovered new coil had been getting so hot during previous owner play, that coil sleeve was scored by plunger and plunger was sticking. Filed down sleeve and emery clothed plunger rod. Flipper no longer sticks. However, coil gets hot (too hot to touch) when actual game is being played. Coil does not get hot when machine is just turned on and actual game has not been started. Attempted adjustment of EOS switch, but no change. Discovered previous owner had apparently reversed EOS switch blue wires as compared to left flipper and comparing to manual. Changed and resoldered EOS switch to coil lugs but coil still over heats. I've purchased a flipper rebuild kit, but now I'm unsure of the exact EOS wire configuration for the rt flipper. Can anyone provide an up close pic of their rt flipper coil lugs and EOS switch wiring or drawing, please.
