Mr. Pinball Tip:

It might seem crazy, but the following tip will work. If the drop targets on your Capt. Fantastic don't always all stay up when reset then a hack saw blade is your solution. The reason the targets don't stay up is because excessive wear on the 'L' shaped bar that contacts and lifts the targets causes the targets to not be raised high enough to be pulled by spring into the lock position. A hack saw blade is the right width and can simply be taped onto the bar and will force the targets to be raised to proper height. Sometimes more than one thickness of blade my be required. So, after you hack saw your Capt. Fantastic you'll be back in business.
