Busted! (busted coil that is…. :0D )


See how it leans a little down on the left side? Yeah..... it's not supposed to do that.

This is the way the coil is supposed to look. Tight against the coil stops on both the right and left side.

We got a call for a Star Wars with a broken left flipper. When we arrived and took a look at the machine, WOW, they were not kidding. The flipper had broken both hex bolts at the stop and the coil was just hanging free inside of the game. This required a complete tear down of the flipper just to get the broken bolts out. We rebuilt the entire flipper just to be on the safe side. This is the first time we have ever seen anything of this nature.
