Just picked up a FT that’s stood for 15 yrs in a dry room. Replaced the cpu as it had some acid damage despite the guy cutting off the batteries (not soon enough it appears).
Ok problem is when it kicks out a ball into the shooter lane it’s hitting the metal plate covering the shooter lane wood and bouncing straight back into the ball trough hole it’s just come from. Coil is correct one and it’s happening around 60% of the time. It’s seems worse if you get multiball, so any ideas please. Thanks Ken.

Being honest I don’t know. I ain’t checked the voltages going to the coils or checked the voltage plug for the transformer. I’ll do that tomorrow. Thanks.

Bend the actuator arm that hits the ball. It sounds like it is hitting it bang on the centre.

If you bend the arm towards the head a little it will give more of a glancing blow which should suffice

You have the perfect excuse, you're supposed to shop on your own, thems the rules 👀
Erm yea in theory but our local Lidl will let us shop together and as my wife and I are 74 it’s easier to do as I’m told. She don’t drive anyway so I’m buggered if I’m gonna sit in Lidl’s car park whilst she hunts for stuff we don’t soddin eat.
