I have a 1975 Gottlieb El Dorado game and I wanted to know what size the e clips are that hold the scoring reels together I have a whole kit and none seem to fit. any help would be greatly appreciated.

According to the GTB 1976 parts catalog, that is a #5133-25 Retaining Ring but the size is not listed. A google search suggests it to be more of a universal part number/size rather than a Gottlieb part number.

Sounds like it's a 1/4" size.

Ken Layton I tried a 1/4 didn’t fit I went to Lowe’s and bought a 3/16 haven’t had a chance to try it. Jeff C Thank you for the information and the picture.

3/16 is the correct size e clip for the scoring reel.

Then there must be an error in the parts catalog. The -25 usually means it's a 1/4" and the -18 usually means 3/16".

Ha! I just lost some of the same e clips on my C37 restoration definitely 3/16”. Not the first data mistake I suspect.
