We have a "parts wanted" thread but maybe a focused thread would help matching heads to lower cabinets..

We see a Bally Nip-it needs a head

i have the following heads available:
-GTB Target Pool
-GTB King of Diamonds
-GTB Mini Cycle

And there is a (rough) Kings and Queens head on ebay.

Need complete head for 1950 WLMS Dreamy

Thanks Ken!

#3 11 months ago

Need a head for a Bally "Campus Queen".

#4 11 months ago

How about starting a thread just for missing back doors?

Go4it!

#6 11 months ago

I could use a back door for a Bally "Mad World". These were on many multi-player Ballys of the era, but are hard to find if you need one.

#7 11 months ago

Need a complete head for a 1951 Chicago Coin King Pin.

Hey dude, what's up?

#9 11 months ago

I need a head from either a Rack-A-Ball, Bowling Queen or Mibs.

i need a back door for a capersville....

#13 11 months ago

I approve of this thread. Even with no personal need for it currently, this is going to be satisfying to see matches made.

#14 11 months ago

I have a decent Hurdy Gurdy lower cab. that needs a head,
and I have a 1971 Gottlieb Extra Inning Head..

Yea, goal is one match making per month! A lot of us have parted out games because the pf is toast. there should be lots of heads available. I have 3-4 empty wedgehead heads as well.

#16 11 months ago

How does shipping work on these? I gotta believe it is expensive.

Anyway, I have a few wedgeheads available.

Slick Chick
Flying Carpet
Subway
Funland?
Rack A Ball - painted silver

World Beauties

Regarding doors - Dimensions would be helpful. I have some doors that I have no idea what they are for.

How's the "Subway" head? We obviously know what happened to the body!

Stripped now.

Quoted from DennisDodel:

You do realize that this is in Michigan? The head is in storage and I can swing by and get a picture, but it is a little rough and was painted silver. Assuming it is $10 + shipping is this something you would want to pursue? My thought is that once you get the $30 or so shipping bill, it isn't worth it? But if you are truly interested, I'll swing by and snap a picture. Might be next week though.

#23 11 months ago

So it's not as in this photo? Backglass was sold, or was it trashed?

Yes. As long as it is mostly mechanically complete. Please take photos. Thanks!

#25 11 months ago
Quoted from boilerman:

Does it fit into a narrow metal channel at the bottom?
The one I need for "Mad World" is that type. You have to hook the narrow lower lip of the door into the channel, then swing it upward to close it. These seem nearly impossible to find.

mine is missing the channel also. i don't recall that type on the other capersville i had. is it a kind of a locking mechanism ?

Ahhhhh.. Now I see. Unfortunately, with the exception of Funland, World Beauties and Flying Carpet, the heads are empty.

So, that might be something we need to point out going forward.

BG sold.

That's why I said COMPLETE head in my first one...I thought that was kinda the OP's intention too - matching up complete games. Seems to me empty head and back door needs/haves should be posted in the general parts seeking thread...

I don't really know the OPs intention, since he didn't post it. Luckily, I wasn't responding to your post for a COMPLETE head with an offer for an empty one, or THAT would have been not what you wanted.

With my Mad World I cheated. I removed the channel and used a Two Player Gottlieb Door. (Slightly bent the top of the door to work.) Our local Pinfixer, Chris K. had some NOS available.

It's not perfect, but it seems to fit my needs.

It seems to deter prying the door from the bottom edge.

#34 11 months ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

I just traded away a reasonably good "Rack a Ball" head, sans backglass, back door and animation balls. It was also painted over in a scheme similar to "Sing Along".

#35 11 months ago

This just came up on Chicago Craigslist. 1964 Williams Grand Slam head for $100 obo. A nice deal if you happen to have a lower cab.

Close! But that reminds me...

I Need a head for a 1953 WLMS De Luxe Baseball - it's a funny one...just a bubbled running man unit basically:
https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=3045

Was going to build one someday maybe...but finding one would be obviously better.

#37 11 months ago

I am looking for a few also,not easy to find,OK if no BG ,as those available as repros : Neptune,Flipper Cowboy,Nags

Thanks

That's the King Pin that I found in a warehouse out in the middle of a cornfield in Southern Illinois about ten years ago. The warehouse was on the verge of collapsing and the walls were being held up by chains from the outside. There were many dozens of games there but most were waterlogged and beyond saving. The King Pin was one of the few games that had survived this mess.
I paid dearly for the King Pin only because it is so rare and unusual. I re-furbished it and had planned to keep it, but Rob saw it in the background of a photo I had taken of another game that I was selling on e-bay. He offered me an astronomical amount for the game and I had to let it go.
Rob has tried to sell the game a few times with no luck. I am not sure if he still has the game but if anyone is interested in it might be worth contacting Rob.

Well, "fastford02" isn't Rob.

I don't get it. What am I missing?

#42 11 months ago
Quoted from DennisDodel:

The guy looking for the '51 CC "King Pin" head is "fastford02".
I thought you said Rob had this very game, and might still have it.
I'll ask "fastford02" if he got his from Rob. How many of these can still be around?

#43 11 months ago

I'll chime in....looking for a complete head for Williams Gay 90s (back glasses too) and a head for a Gottlieb Jet Spin. (I've got the backglass and guts, the head was waterlogged though).

#44 11 months ago

You're saying Rob has a complete one, then? If so I misunderstood what you meant about this "headless" one is the
same one you rescued from the warehouse in Illinois.

#45 11 months ago
Quoted from ejacques:

That's a really big one!

#46 11 months ago

Bigger in size than most? I've heard there's only a few late gottlieb EMs that had that size head. I'm just hoping to avoid having to try my hand at woodworking.

FWIW, there's an entire Gay 90s for sale on CL here in San Antonio for $500. Maybe you could work a deal for the whole machine.

Yeah, it's huge! I think the only other one that large is "Jungle Queen", but there might be one or two more.

Quoted from jrpinball:

Yes. I sold the complete one to Rob Berk who also has photos of the game on the IPDB. So counting the one the late Russ Jensen took photos of shown on the data base, only two different games are shown there.

I'm the one looking for the Nip-It head. I managed to source a full prodject game to make 1 single machine but that still leaves me w a body and no head so I'm still looking. Thanks op for making this thread.
