Does anyone know the part # for the left flipper button switch on a Fireball II and where I can get a new one. It controls the upper and lower flipper on the left hand side. Any help much appreciated

Thanks big Al. just want to make sure this will work, the one I need is the left flipper which is also tied into the upper flipper as well, so I am able to use the one you sent in the link correct? I am a rookie at all of this so appreciate everyones help and their patience

What exactly are you replacing? The button or the electrical switch it'self?
With the exception of color, most buttons are the same. The electrical switch for a flipper button is typically the same unless there is a lane change switch added on top.
As for activating the upper flipper, that is done by a second EOS mounted to the flipper assembly. Flippers are made so when the flipper flips it's End of Stroke opens about 80%through, then, if there is an upper flipper, it closes a switch to power the upper flipper. This insures both flippers on any one side are not fully powered at once.

Thanks again BigAl, I replaced the cabinet switch and had to resolder a wire that had come off of the solenoid, good to go!
