So I need help - I have almost completed my Bally Centaur Restoration, but there a few things I cannot find anywhere - are they really impossible to find?

Top of the list is the narrow height ball gate assembly that attaches to the upper wood rail. image2 (resized).jpegimage2 (resized).jpeg

The other three items I need are wire gates - now I know I can make my own wire, but the brackets I'll still need. The one at the end of the shooter lane is very long, and the other two I cannot find brackets for either - are they all "un-obtainium"? Thanks

Ball Gate & Wire Assy

Are for Centaur only.

-97 & -98 have the same parts...
comprised of common Bally parts...
Need to get in touch with a Centaur owner that can get measurements...
Gate bracket could ID a common assembly used on another Bally
Game... Same for wire form... But put together with one of three positions
that the brackets have.
-99 assembly bracket is custom to Centaur. The wire form could be common
to older Bally games...

Thanks - I know the gate numbers and since I have the game, I have the measurements (2 3/4" either side of flipper) - but I cannot find that length anywhere. I need a source for the brackets, and I need a source for the ball gate assembly? As far as I know, that upper gate assembly is unique to Centaur.

So I dug out my box of Centaur specific parts and what do you know ?! You're lucky I'm a reasonable person

Yes PLEASE! PM me, I was hoping someone might have one. But I didn't think the odds were that great.
