That piece isn't important, Waldo. It just keeps the game from catching on fire.

Cool I'll throw it away and make sure it's covered in my home owner's policy....

Is that piece broken/jagged ?

Some things to look at while trying to deduce where a piece might go...

1) Are there any screws left over? If not, either you flat out lost a screw, or it should be held in by another screw, in addition to what that screw is holding in.

2) Is there any sign of wear? (especially visible if it's painted, which that looks like it is). If it's got no sign of wear that looks like a ball was hitting it, then it doesn't go someplace that the ball can get to. If it has no other points of wear, that implies that it's not used as a stop for any other mechanical device.

Sometimes you can tell by scrolling through MarcoSpec.com Just shop by game and see if you can find it. Sometimes the name or description will tell you what it's for.

Dammit, I know this. I think. I'm pretty sure it was attached to the supercharger. When I shopped mine I remember taking it off and looking at it, trying to figure out what the hell it was for.

Ok looked at some pics. Check the pic, I think it's the piece above the U-turn where the ball exits the supercharger. I think it was attached to the cab itself, not the playfield.

Man I am not seeing what it is from that pic. Mine looks the same as the pic minus his has a broken plastic piece on the left side....This piece isn't broken or worn in any way. Game seems to play fine without it, still hasn't caught on fire yet either....

Maybe this one is better.

Look at the upper left most part of the playfield, then the metal part above the U-turn plastic. I'm not certain if that's it or not. It seemed to me like a piece to prevent the ball getting stuck in the rear of the pf somewhere. If I hadn't sold mine I'd go look.

I don't have that on mine, looks like a homemade item on that pic. This piece isn't much bigger then a quarter (skinnier but taller by a hair). Thanks for all the help btw.

It goes on top of the post in front of the right upper flipper on top off the plastic, it is a ball trap bracket ..

I rule !

Impressive find! Looks like others are missing that part. All the pics on pinside minus this one didn't have it.

Nice, someone has a HS2 that's more disgusting than mine! I have it in the same spot as Jim, but mine is facing to the left, not up.
