I've been trying to tweak my Gottlieb double flippers to get a bit more power. (System 80 Spider-Man)

I've only recently learned how Bally double flippers are wired with the second Normally Open switch on the lower flipper to maximize it's power before engaging the second flipper at EOS.

Has anyone ever rewired Gottlieb double flippers the same way? Is it doable or is there something different I'm not taking into consideration ? If you've done it does it make a big difference?

Try it. I understand the concept but if the power supply is adequate it may not make a noticeable difference.

Another effect of the Bally wiring that's relevant on double flippers: On my Paragon, I can blip the right flipper button and make the bottom right flipper twitch (such as when passing the ball), while the upper right flipper remains still. It's not possible to lose the ball between the two right flippers when doing this.

Experiment 1... i’ll just disconnect second sets of flippers to see if single flipper is stronger by itself. Yes, if power supply has enough current it may not make a difference. Good point, thanks! May not get to this for a bit but will report back.
