    Default Model A Center Tray Questions

    The Center Tray on the Model A I'm working on is in two peices and I'm not sure if that's correct or not.

    Is this ramp peice supposed to be glued to the the center tray?


    My second question is the mounting point on the right side of the center tray. Is it supposed to have a piece of tagboard or some type of spacer between it and the back of the playfield or was this an "addition?"

    If they're supposed to be there, no problem, I can shape a peice of leather or something to replace it.

    As always, thanks in advanced. You guys are awesome!

    looks right to me

    yes there two pieces

    the other piece is as needed.. i have seen machines with and without.. i have also added cardboard stock to ship the ramp out a bit..

    As I remember...the curve attaches to the back of the cell. The ramp should be hinged, and can flip up once installed. Not sure why it can flip up...but they all do. Can't remember if the shims are on all of them...but they look familiar. I have a few model A machines, I can look at them later and see what I can tell. I think they are shims to align the ramp to the tray.

    Thanks, so no glue then from the ramp to the center tray? Just leave them as separate pieces?

    I gotta say, this is my 3rd restoration and the Model A is badass! There's so much more going on with them!

    Cheers guys!
