I am looking to redo all the connectors on my Silverball Mania.
I know I am supposed to use trifurcon on the .156 connectors.

Can anyone give me part numbers for some of the housing,
board pins, and crimp connectors for some of the .156 and .100 from
mouser, msc, digikey, allied, newark (or similar) ?

If you have a count of size and count of all the connecters, that would
save me some time.

Go here:


Look on the left for the links to connectors.

His prices are pretty good. I've found his qty discounts are in line with Newark & digikey for this stuff.

Has tons of stuff for Bally pins.

Thanks for the plug!

No prob, Todd.

Didn't know you were on here!

Thanks for the info. Prices look pretty good. I am going to put
my list together (double checking each connector).

I just bought all the connectors for the same game. Todd was nice enough to put together an invoice of everything I needed!

Must Silverball mania week/month.

Just picked up one over the weekend.

Non-working then, but purrs like a kitten now!

If you have any trouble getting it running, let me know.

I have mine working, but wanted to prevent problems in the future.
When I first got it, it was sold to me as having smoke coming out of it.
I cleaned out a ton of dust, and cleaned the connectors and pins.
I got it "up" and had some display problems. I used deoxit on the display
connectors, (and all the others), and this helped, all the displays worked.
Some of the connectors are discolored from heat, and I want to prevent
electrical problems before they occur. Bad connections = bad things!

I prefer working on the machines and bought it for my wife as she like playing.

Thanks for the offer anyway. If you have any problems, please feel free to contact me!

Thanks, big bird, will do.

Always good to have someone to bounce things off of.

Todd's got the goods, and he's a good guy to deal with.

You will need about 160 of the .100 crimp terminals (150 is not enough,learned that with my guess). You may wish to investigate replacing/rebuilding the power rectifier board as I was told this is a common weak point on these games.

Yup, those vishay bridge rectifiers get toasty and fail. But hey, they're 30+ years old!

The connectors get fried, too. Couple of ground mods take some of the pressure off of the, though.

Not too big a deal to do...

tayda electronics has the best prices and connector housings and pins. I do not think they have trifurcon tho.
