Very new here - and very much a novice with pinball machines. I have a 1980 Gottlieb Amazing Spider-man pinball machine, in the family since 1992. I replaced the CPU board a few years ago and just this weekend, replaced all the lights with LED - and looks fantastic. I'd like to replace the score displays in the backbox but I just want to be sure since they are not cheap. See the images of an original score display right now on the pin. Here is the vendor I'd like to purchase the displays:

The new display boards do have holes in them to mount with the wire harness to be plugged in at the bottom. I just want to make sure they fit as I won't be able to return if opened. Does anyone have any advice?

Sorry for such a simple question.... I just want to make sure it will work to the best of my knowledge. I don't have an issue with spending $300, just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing, that's all.

Get them from the company that makes them:

That way you know you're getting the right thing and while I'm not sure of their return policy there, anything other than "you can't return it" is better.

If you don't mind some soldering there is a kit available from Wolffpac Technologies. the thing I like about these is that the segments are shaped the same as the original Gottlieb displays. I have not used them yet, so don't have experience.
