I've been going through a similar issue on an early 60's Williams game myself lately.

I'm going to guess that you installed new rollovers you got from Pinball Resource.

In my experience the length of the shaft of a repro is based on Gottlieb design and is a bit longer than the shaft on the original Williams part. Not by much but enough that you will need an adjustment. Follow Stoomer's response to adjust both leafs. The primary leaf gets adjusted to get the elevation you want on the top side of the playfield. The short leaf then gets adjusted to have the contacts within 1/16" or just a little less so they actuate easily.

If you got the PBR repros they come with the nylon screw to hold them in so weight will not come into play here. You do want to have the screw tight to end of the shaft so the hole in the leaf seats into the small neck at the end of the shaft. You won't get it 100% tight - there is supposed to be a small amount of slop in the fit there.

Quoted from mbwalker:

Resurrecting a slightly old thread. What is the typical height for a rollover button in relation to the top of the PF?

Just high enough to trigger when a ball rolls adjacent but in contact with it.
