Ordering a ton of parts to restore my DE Simpsons; Pinball Life only has the Williams part number (02-3406-1) listed for their pop bumper plungers. I would assume DE uses the same part but wanted to make certain, I'm sure someone out there must have rebuilt a DE pop bumper at some point.

While I'm thinking of it, can anyone with a DE Simpsons tell me if theirs originally came with a green (low tension) ball shooter spring? My current sorry-looking spring looks like it was originally painted green; if this is the correct spring tension for a Simpsons, I may as well replace it with a new green one.

I also have to replace one of the VUK plungers; Marco has a component kit -

- but the part number is different than in the Simpsons manual. I can't see DE completely redesigning their VUK, will this fit in my older coil/bracket assembly?
