Mr. Pinball Tip:

Gottlieb's EM flippers are often weak because someone wound the flipper return spring too tight. In this case the flipper is fighting the strength of the spring. Undo the spring and wind it so that it just returns the flipper to resting position. Note that you may have to undo one of the screws holding the spring to the flipper bushing to move the spring to a better position. Note also that the spring need not return the flipper to resting position when the playfield is up, only when it is down.
