Link - flipper, tapered old style
Early style gray plastic flipper link used with the tapered compression flipper spring that slides over the flipper plunger.
Tapered link is used on early flipper assemblies to prevent flipper return spring from binding.
The newer style oval link will not work properly with the conical shaped spring.
Maintenance tip: Note that it is highly recommended to change the entire plunger & link assembly when the link is broken. The plunger and coil stop are usually worn to the point where the additional distance traveled by the plunger stresses and breaks the link. This typically occurs after an estimated 500,000 flip cycles. See the associated plunger & link assembly or flipper rebuild kit under related items below.
