I have a Gottlieb EM Hot Shot that I have brought back to life and it generally works very well. On occasion, the scoring will skip, say from 0 to 600 on a 500 point shot. After eyeballing it several times over and seeing that everyone looks okay, I took the reel apart and swapped parts with player 3, and this seemed to cure it, so I'm thinking that some of those cogs or whatever are worn. Can these parts be had new or do you have to source a reel from parts games?

Thanks in advance

the Nylon parts don't really wear out that much, but the return spring can lose tension over time, and not keep up with the scoring pulses to step the reel. A new return spring may be all that is needed.

But parts can be purchased from Pinball Resource.
