    Dirt, the link on my Atlantis seems to be sloppy -- the little bakelite link at the top of the plunger can slide back and forth too much (I believe) on that post between the little "c" clip and the side of the mechanism. As far as I can tell, that's the only part that's worn out. The rest looks good to me. Should I just replace the plunger/link or the whole assembly to be safe?

    Quoted from EMsInKC:

    Even when you replace it, you can still sometimes have issues. It was just not a really good design by Gottlieb. I've never had a Williams or Bally game have issues like this, but the Gottliebs seem to generally always have it.

    Interesting. Yeah my Top Card (similar era wedgehead) has no issues and that little bakelite link it nice and firm as it rotates on that post. So I'm either going to order only the link/plunger assembly from PBR, or a whole new unit.
