Williams used the tan plastic shooter housing at that time. They are often broken, but Marco sells new ones. Yes, wait until you know what part (s) are bad, including other things on the game and place a larger order.

Have fun, that is a good/hard game.

Quoted from illawarra92:

my love bug (aab doodle bug) has the metal housing, think the plastic housings were more late 60s

The 74-75 WMS parts catalog which includes Doodle Bug lists the "New ball shooter assembly with nylon housing". Hard to tell from the flyers what housings are on there.

Looking back at the other WMS catalogs, you are right that the plastic shooter housing was introduced in the 60's. In fact, each of the 1966, 1969, 1971-72 and 1974-75 catalogs list the Nylon housing as "new".
The 1977-78 catalog is the first appearance of the Zinc die cast housing.
