Quoted from mrm_4:
Since were up in this area of the playfield. What’s the fix here?
Can’t win. Get it to allow the ball to roll back but then it’s not enough to engage the switch.
Man somebody really hacked this poor game. The trip wire for the micro switch needs to be adjusted, but you can do that after the hardtop install. Marco used to carry new trip wires, you may need one and start over.
Starting at left behind the down ramp. That screw hole is correct but the post is wrong. Save the spool post for the tube left side clamp. The post there should be a 1.5 inch plastic spacer. It looks like your lamp strip is broken? A good replacement is sold here from igo4rams. You are missing the fiber washers and the #6 flat washers. I will try to post pics of the hardware later. The stud and cap nut are incorrect. It should be a phillips head post screw, flat washer and 2 fiber washers, one on each side of the lamp strip mounting holes.
Now to the right. The metal post must go. It appears they didn't have the correct rubber and just threw that in then and added another rubber. Refer to pinflips post #725. The holes he circled in yellow are correct. On yours there's an empty screw hole, that's also not correct. The right side lamp strip mounting hole should be near that added metal post, it may even be the hole that they screwed the metal post into, hard to tell from pic.
So my assumption is this. They added metal post to add extra rubber and then moved the lamp strip to a new hole where there is no screw now.
Does the hardtop have any holes already cut out for this area?
