Restorations (Pinball - Parts Cleaning - Solenoid Assemblies)
Solenoid Assemblies

I disassemble all of the assemblies and clean the metals parts with Bleche White and/or a Scotch Brite pad. I always install new coil sleeves and inspect stops, plungers, and arms for any damage. All of these assemblies should move freely when you re-assemble them. If they don’t you did something wrong and need to work on it. Most of these metal parts just need a good cleaning and don’t need to be replaced.

Some like to buy brand new assemblies instead of cleaning them. I figure I save an average of three to four hundred dollars a pin by cleaning instead of replacing. When I’m done the assemblies function like new.
