Mr. Pinball tip for Monday, June 27, 2022

Worn Bally drop target bank assemblies often have a problem of resetting one or two targets too high. This is caused by the pivot arm connected to the base of the target being worn such that the end is too short to remain in the guide slot. There are several ways to remedy this problem.

1. Exchange the pivot arm with one on either outside end of the assembly. The outside arms are the same, but don't get worn because they don't have a guide slot.
2. A faster solution is to deform the back plane of the assembly, moving the guide slot slightly forward, by inserting a penny, washer, or two in the gap between the two metal pieces that meet next to the bottom of each guide slot.
