Hello everyone,

So the other day my Jungle Princess (two player of Jungle Queen) stopped awarding points on the monkey targets, the inlanes and the A,B and C lanes. All are 500 points and award bonus advance. I should also mention that the bonus on the game no longer lights or advances. So looking at the game I noticed one of the switches on the 500 award bonus relay had snapped and therefore no longer closes when actuated. When manually forced to make contact it will award 500pts and advance the bonus. My question is where do I find a replacement switch for this relay? I don't have a manual or a part # to reference. Looking at Marco's/Pinball Resource I cant tell which is the right switch. I also noticed that the end switch on one of the pop bumpers is broken as well. At first it seemed out of adjustment but when I set it with my tool the metal has lost all its spring and just stays open. Looking closer it's about to snap at the base. If anyone can provide insight on where to purchase these 2 switches or a part # I would appreciate it!! Pics attached for reference.

I just buy switch blades and tungsten contacts from Pinball Resource and make my own. The blades come in 3 different thickness depending on the stiffness you need. Just buy a few of each. I'd guess these are probably the medium ones.

The blades have multiple holes in the end for the contacts. Just find the right hole, insert the contact and clinch the nub over with a small hammer. Then cut the blade to length.

If you need those plastic switch things that push the switch blades, Pinball Resource has those too in multiple lengths.

Separate the switch stack, desolder the old switch blade and insert the new one, solder and reassemble. It's definitely a PITA but you're probably not going to find exactly what you want for sale.

If the blades are good, you can grind the nub off the old contact and replace with a new one.
