The CM3501 bridge rectifier on my DE Simpsons power supply board is blown. It is a full metal body lug type, not a pin type, 25 amp, 400 volt.
I have a NTE bridge that has a metal top, plastic sides and is 40 amp, 600 volt, lug type. Can I use that as a sub?

Thanks,

Alan

Yes, but 3501 means 35 Amp 100 Volt not 25 Amp 400 Volt.

Usually I find the old games called for a 25 amp and if you replace with a 35 amp you're good to go. Did the manual say 25/400 but the part read 3501? Maybe it was a replacement that was under voltage and that's why it failed. But I am also not used to anything being rated for 400 volt on a pin.

I usually stock 3504 and replaces 99% of my pinball needs.

But yes a 40 Amp 600 Volt bridge should outlast you and the pin.
