Default Gottlieb Hot Shot extra scoring

Hi,
Newbie to pinballs, though this one has been in my family for 30 years. Sat neglected/broken for many years, and I managed to bring it back to life. Recently (after sitting for a while again), I've had a problem with excessive scoring. At the end of the turn, the machine will give credit for targets that weren't dropped. For example, if the 4 and 5 targets are dropped, the machine will score 4, 5, and sometimes 6. If 3, 7, 10 are dropped, sometimes 4, 8, or 11 are also counted. When this happens, the dropped targets are lit on the playfield. The "ghost" targets will light up on the playfield briefly when they're counted, and then go out again. Any help greatly appreciated...

If you need help yet, check the drop targets down switches. Too close of a gap on these switches might be the ghosts.
