    I have a Midway Stunt Pilot and need to replace the trim pots on the sound board. But I don't know anything about trim pots. What ohm value should I use? Is there anything else I need to consider? I don't see any markings on them to help me out. I do know the board runs off 6 volts. And any idea where to get them? I looked at great plains and mouser and didn't see any that looked like these. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Ohms is all you need. And that it is the same physical size to fit in the holes. There should be 3 legs. Put an Ohm meter on the 2 outside legs and that should give you the value. The center leg is the moving part that usually goes bad.

    Great tip on using the meter set on Ohms. I'll try that. And thanks for the digikey web site. I'll measure the ohms and get one ordered. Thanks!

    I couldn't get a reading with the MM but I did see stamped very lightly on the back side was 47k. So I ordered some through digikey. Thanks again for the help.
