Flipper Shaft End Play Spacing Gauge Keep that great “Williams Flipper Play” on your game!
Whenever you adjust the flipper mechanism, use the Flipper Shaft End Play Spacing Gauge (p/n 03-8194) to ensure that the flipper shaft end play is correct.
With the playfield raised, slip the prongs of the gauge around the Flipper Shaft between the nylon Flipper Bushing and the Flipper Crank Assembly (with cap screw and nut gripping the shaft). Your flipper is properly adjusted, when the End Play Gauge slides smoothly around the shaft. Excessive gauge binding (too little end play) or excessive looseness (‘sloppy fit’) indicates that the flipper shaft end play is incorrect.
