Williams / Bally pinball machines flippers are designed for a balance of power based on the layout of a given game. Always use the specified coil number for your machine.
Always install a flipper rebuild kit before changing coils (see related items below). The factory recommends a complete flipper rebuild every 500,000 cycles or flips.
