I have an open d1 zener diode for a bally 6803. The diode in qustion is a 1n958b. Per clays guide, any 6a1 diode can be substituted. Can someone translate this for me or give an example?

Quoted from jewboyflowerhead:

The diode in qustion is a 1n958b

D1 zener 1N958b (7.5V 0.5W) is on the control board,
D1 MR751 is on the PowerModule, used to rectify 14Vac for the regulator

The MR751 can be replaced by a 6A1.

Doh! You're right. I clipped the wrong section of the guide. Any suitable sub for the the 1n958b? Do the specs need to be exact in this situation?

I'm not sure about the purpose of the diode but I would replace it with the same specs.

1N958B is still made but you can also use a somewhat easier to find 1N5236B.
