When removing screws from the playfield, reinstall by first turning them counter-clockwise to match the original groove in order to respect the integrity of the playfield wood.
- With the power OFF, open coin door, remove lockdown bar, close coin door, remove playfield glass, raise playfield into the vertical position.
- Locate the drop target assembly beneath the playfield. Remove the triangle shaped LED board that is now ‘above’ the drop target assembly. It is attached by two #1 Phillips screws. You may unplug it, or simply move it to a safe area while still connected. It illuminates the emerald in front of the drop target on the playfield.
- Remove the four ¼” hex-head screws securing the drop target assembly to the underside of the playfield. You may find it easier to unplug the microswitch on the bottom of the drop target assembly first. With the screws removed, rotate the assembly to the left so that you can easily access the drop target itself.
- Remove the two e-clips that secure the drop target to the assembly, and remove the spring that connects the target to the metal assembly. It is probably easiest to unhook it from both ends. USE CAUTION - The ‘top’ e-clip has a spring underneath it and it can fling parts all over if you’re not careful! And don’t misplace the long skinny spring that attaches to the drop target when you remove it!
Also, take note of the various washers and their installed order. For details on how to remove and replace a drop target assembly, check out this video)
Remove the original Winkie drop target and replace it with the MezelMods winkie target. The target MUST face the correct direction (pretty obvious, the decal should face towards the assembly). Reinstall the washers and e-clips, install the ‘long skinny spring’ last. Don’t forget to plug the microswitch on the bottom of the drop target back in if you unplugged it earlier.
You can now remount the drop target. Replace the four hex-head screws to remount the assembly. Replace the two #1 Phillips screws in the LED board.
Remove ONLY the very ‘top’ ¼” hex-head screw on the castle upkicker assembly. It is DIRECTLY below the secured drop target, and is just to the right of the LED board labeled #12. Place the LED bracket in a vertical position facing the target. Replace hex-head screw. See photo.
Unplug the connector that services the spotlight on the castle upper playfield. It is a two-wire connector, and is very near the bottom of the overall playfield. You can see it in the image as a bundle of light blue wires on the right, with the winkie harness plugged in with purple and white wires. It only fits in one way. Connect the MezelMods winkie harness to both sides of the original connector.
Lower the playfield to its normal horizontal position, replace the playfield glass and lockdown bar, and you’re done.
