Hi
My Flinstones has a rail missing under the left ramp which results in the ball hitting the front of another ball guide and coming back down more often than not.
No part number shown in manual, any help to source a replacement much appreciated
First pic you can see the hole where it goes in.
2nd pic you can just see the front of the ball guide that the ball hits under the ramp with this rail missing.
3rd pic is from a stock pic showing the rail in the hole.
Final pic clearly shows the rail between a support and ball guide.

Anything but 100% clean shot that hugs the left rail will hit the front of the right rail and come down.
This makes loading the crane a real pain

Is this a common issue?
Looks like @Renvil (my old machine) has the same issue.
Why would these have been taken out?

You will probably have to make one Tony
Thanks Chris,
Thought that may be the case but wanted to put it out there to see if anyone may have had one or similar.
Will make one myself and post here as it seems there may be a few that are missing and going unnoticed.
I always check every shot and function when I get a machine and found so many simple things like gates wrong way round and spinners not activating microswitch and wonder how people enjoyed the game lol 😂

If you make one, do you fancy making two? ;)

I would reimburse you of course!

Thanks to Vimtoman for finding the part for me, I’ve now ordered 2 from planetary pinball as they were only $1.50 and if it’s correct when it arrives (should be as it’s 3 3/4”) then I will send the 2nd one to Renvil for the cost of postage.
