    Can't seem to find the part number anywhere. My NGG is missing the wire harness for the backbox. Assuming I will have to build one unless someone has a used one for sale. Does anyone know the part number for the GI and flasher sockets? Can't find them anywhere in the manual.

    According to the parts list from IPDB, I believe you want line #2402:

    24-8863 socket t-31/4 white w/o diode qty 32

    This is found within the "no good gofers insert assy" part on line 2395. For what it is worth, the wiring for that appears to be part no. H-22208-1.1 (line 2406)

    I think they are only available in black from marco

    Seems like they don't list NGG as a compatible game for these. Maybe the list isn't complete?

    They may be different that’s what I used on my games but they are early 90s NGG is a little newer so I wonder if they used a different socket

    Yup just looked it up they are different from what I sent. Looks like action pinball has them but their site is closed they are on vacation it says.

    I think Pinball life might be getting some in the future. I suppose no one has a spare harness they would want to sell? I don't even care if it is a NGG as long as it is a WPC 95. I can always add or remove sockets if not for the correct game.

    For the detail oriented among Pinsiders ... Pat Lawlor games typically have blinkers (455 or 545) not flashers in the backbox inserts. They are connected in their own string to the GI (6.3VAC) not the CPU controlled flashers (12VDC).

    The different strings are identified by different sized or colored sockets. For IDC wedge sockets the regular (non-blinking) lamps are usually on white sockets. The special (blinking) lamps are usually on black sockets.

    The ultra detail oriented restorer and/or collector will likely already know this.

    Please be aware that the color/size mentioned above is from memory.

    Yes and I am pretty sure there is no difference between the black and white except for identification pusposes. Good luck finding the white IDC sockets I coudlnt find them anywhere bought a bunch from pinballspare parts a few years ago. Idk why nobody makes them anymore the white ones are always crispy as hell in ever game I have worked on.

    Correct. There's no electrical difference between the sockets. The color itself is not important. The difference is just a way to identify which are regular and which are blinkers.

    These have a diode in them. The diode is used for controlled lamps in the lamp matrix.

    It looks like these will work.

    Thanks guys. Hopefully this is what I need.

    Only if your a pain in the ass when it comes to keeping your game origina like me.
