    I need some new PIAs. GPE doesn't have them anymore. Marco has them but 9.00 each plus 7.00 shipping!!!

    I see them on Ebay at 10 pcs for 10.00 plus 2.00 shipping from China. I've made 3 purchases from China and got burned twice.

    Has anyone got PIA's from China? Are they any good?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the suggestions. I ordered 10 from Aliexpress but they have about a 30 day shipping time, so I also ordered 2 (plus a few other things) from Jameco. That should cover all the bases.

    Thanks

    Update - I received two PIA's from Jameco a few weeks ago. Put them in my Wild Fyre and that fixed the problems I was having.

    Then I ordered a PIA tester from Neoloch. I tested the 7 questionable PIAs I had in my parts drawer - 5 were good and 2 bad.

    Today I received the 10 PIA's from China. 9 tested good - 1 bad. Better than I expected. Not bad for 10.00. But they seem to be all different markings? And some look like they been scuffed up and dirty.

    The Neoloch tester is going to be an invaluable tool.

    In my parts drawer I found 2 IC's marked SC44067P. I checked on line and found they seem to be a replacement for the 6821. They checked good in my tester. Anyone ever heard of this? Will they work in a pinball?

    Thanks

    I bought the bundle kit and power supply - About 80.00. The kits were easy to build and the instructions were easy to follow.

    I enjoy building these kind of kits.

    You guys got my curiosity up. I had to find out where I got those SC44067P's from. I usually take photos of the games while I'm working on them. I found a photo from 2015 of a Trident I was working on.

    I guess I replaced the PIA's with new ones (probably because they were still available from GPE).

    The game was in really good condition and wasn't played for 15 years - was in this guys basement for 20 years. I'm guessing those PIA's were original.

    Quoted from barakandl:

    You will find some chips with the normal 6821 imprint visibly scuffed off and the WMS part number was stamped on.

    I think Stern did the same thing. Look at the photo above - maybe that's what the scuff marks are.
