c) lane change or upper flipper switch (not on all models)
7) Crank Assembly
a) Plunger
b) Nylon bushing

Linear flippers were used by Bally for only a short period of time. The nylon bushing wears out quickly.  These flippers can be converted to the earlier flipper mechanisms that are more reliable. Contact your parts supplier for information as to what to order for your pin.

Williams (Not Fliptronics) Prior to ~1992

Williams flippers used in System 11 and on into 1992, are not very different that earlier flippers.  The coils are different (changed from serial to parallel  coils) that are easier on the switches and are different coil numbers.  There is also a capacitor located near the EOS switch.
