Does anyone actually still have the pins that Williams put in the playfield to evidently locate the flipper position?

My Grand Prix has holes but no pins. Wondering about these and my assumption that the flipper back side just rested against them.

Does yours actually have holes? Usually when I see these they're just dimples on this era...

I think the pins that you're talking about are only to set up the flipper angle and are not supposed to stay in the playfield during game play.
If you need to set up the angle you can use a drill bit (upside down) to get the angle set and tightened down.

Yep the holes are there. I have seen games that still had the pins in them.
