My Heat Wave is missing the Bell on the Stepper Unit in the Head and was wondering if someone else with a Heat Wave could tell me if it uses what I would assume would be a 3" or 3-3/8" Bell. Also if anyone had the correct Bell to sell I would be interested.

I have included an image of a game (not mine) with the correct one.

TIA,

Ken

Ha! Well you need to catch up Marcus because I also have a 1962 Williams King Pin.

Thanks for looking buddy. See you next weekend.

Obviously it's not worth fixing. Sell it to me cheap

I bought a 3" gottlieb bell (only size i could find) and it was too small. The nylon piece on the clapper arm was also missing (I assume it was nylon), so I put a large metal washer on the arm and it worked out. The bell was quieter, if you're into that.

I just measured mine, exactly 3".

I did not have the right arm -- it was missing the metal ring to ring the bell. I substituted a large fender washer instead, works okay but not great.

I think the metal ring is held loosely on the arm so it doesn't dampen the bell when it hits it. Probably why they all seem to be missing

John's Jukes in Vancouver had the arm part but for more than I was willing to pay.

Man, I love that game! Too bad the place I used to play it (Mike's Mincade in Sparks NV) has closed/moved. I miss it! Good luck getting that bell!

Thanks for checking.

I am lucky as everything else is there, just missing the 3" bell which I can buy at PBR when I get parts for the restore.

Thanks to everyone else who responded as well.
