Step 1.  Remove the coil stop from the flipper base by removing the two screws.  Remove the coil and let hang

Step 2.  Remove the 2 screws holding the End of stroke switch ( EOS )

Step 3.  Remove the entire base by removing the 4 screw into the playfield and undoing the screws holding the        flipper shaft

Step 4.  Remove the Coil bracket, Plunger stop, Bush and EOS bracket and clean all parts except the bush. Photo 1

Step 5.  Start putting all the parts back on order isnt important on these. Photo 2

Step 6.  Attach the new flipper Pawl to the plunger and link with the C Clip

Nice tutorial, but you forgot the last step  !@) -

11. Adjust the EOS switch - push the plunger in so it hits the stop.  Adjust the EOS switch so it is open (around 1mm) at this point.

cheers

Nice one Daniel !

The base plates can be used for either left of right. What I do - swap them over. This is particularly useful for the coil stop screw holes - which usually have threaded or over sized screws anyway !

Not that I can see - an excellent tutorial!

Another tip is that if you get the complete kit from PBR, including cranks, you can convert your mushy linear mechs to the older style shown here for better (IMO) performing flippers %$%  There is no need to replace the baseplates.

cheers
