To do the GI on your DE you'll need:

2x 9-pin .156 headers - part # 26-48-1245: (just get 1 24-pin and cut it to fit)

2x 9-pin .156 connector housings - part # 09-50-8091:

18x .156 Trifurcon pins - part # 08-52-0113: (get extras in case of a crimping disaster)

2x .156 keying plugs - part # 15-04-0297 (same page as pins above)

Plus a crimper if you don't have one.

The headers will replace CN8 on the power supply board and J5 on the PPB board; the connector housings/pins replace the connectors on the cables plugged into those connectors.

I like to order this stuff from Ed at GPE as he's an invaluable source/service for our hobby, but know that Pinball Life should also have all of this in stock if you're ordering other pinball 'stuff' and want to group it together.

Having said all that... if you're not ordering anything else, drop me a PM with your address and I'll toss all the above (except the crimper) in the mail to you tomorrow.

No problem, James. I just dropped these off in the mailroom - happy GI rebuilding!
