Hey guys,

Quick question. Fixing a 58 Sunshine that's had the "off" switch removed. Installing a new one. No biggie but, since this is my first Got woody, does the plunger make or break contact to turn the game off? Also, is there fish paper to prevent grounding against the plunger? Thanks.

As I recall, the circuit is 120 volts AC so yes I would have a fishpaper insulator. The switch breaks contact to turn off as I remember.

Its a normally closed switch

Off switch? I think you just hit the bottom of the cab. Turn on by coining up or plugging in. Or use a surge protector switch and /or a remote switch adapter.

There is a plunger which touches the bottom of the cab that opens the switch when you hit the bottom, killing power to the hold relay

My bad, thought it was in reference to an external switch...and the ball plunger. .

Ok. Thanks for the responses. First, I don't want hear any mouth about the cleanliness of the mech board. I haven't got to it yet. Just doing some repair work first.

Check out the pics. Is this correct? Ken, how can I install a fish paper seperator without breaking the contact if this a normally closed switch unless it uses one of those cylindrical nylon thingy's to push up the other switch?

Since you're never going to touch the plunger, I wouldn't worry too much about insulating it. It's only very momentarily in contact with the switch blade anyway. Most of the time it's at rest and not touching anything.
