FYI it's pretty easy to make your own wire ball gates out of stainless steel welding wire. A couple pair of needle-nose pliers and off you go...

Quoted from Soulrider911:

Good idea, where can i find some?

Plenty of sources; just find the right diameter welding rod.

Quoted from Mellow:

OK, my research came to this...
Move away from IDC connectors to the crimp MOLEX type.
J115 - 12 pin 18AWG 0.156 connectors and header
J120 - 11pin 22AWG 0.156 connector and header
So my shopping list:
0.156 header pin of the correct length for each or cut to size
0.156 connector plug of the correct length for each or cut to size
0.156 crimp contact 18-20AWG
0.156 crimp contact 22-26AWG
0.156 keying plugs
HT-225D crimping tool
Switch GI bulbs to LED (warm white)
Can anyone confirm I got it right?

Looks about right. My suggestion is to invest in the good ratcheting-type crimper tool, it will pay dividends in the long run.

Quoted from GRB1959:

I always dreaded having to redo a connector as I would struggle to make foolproof crimps so I purchased the following crimper and ever since my crimps have come out perfect. It is well worth the cost.

That's a darn good price. I remember paying over 200 back in the day...

It wont move at that price hehe

I've had that opinion before and been proven wrong every time.

I was asked early on if this pinball obsession was an investment and I replied, "No, no - it's a hobby." Now it IS starting to look like an investment.

Quoted from Mellow:

Can anyone please tell me where this tilt switch goes? It is not the plumb bob or the one on the bottom of the cabinet. It is weighted at the end so that is why I think it is a tilt switch.
Thank you!

Slam Tilt switch, attaches to the coin door to punish players who give a knee to the machine.
