Hi
How the hell should I rivet this metal guide with this rubber/metal bracket?

I know I need a rivet on the guide side but i’m confuse how to connect it with the metal bracket on the other side. It looks screw something else.
Any picture or explaination would be great!
Thanks in advance
Lou

Check the games operator handbook. It should list the parts needed. Looks like machine screw and nut. Try 6-32 , 8-32 machine screws in that female opening

You do not want to rivet that piece into place. The whole reason it is assembled with a screw is so you can change the rubber block when it wears out.

The ball is touching the screw/bolt. That’s why there is a rivet originally.
The manual only say « ball guide assembly #2 » with no more détails.

Is this on a CV, looks like it? That part does not get riveted, as you can see the metal post is threaded for a screw, it would not be if it were meant to be riveted. You need a screw with a small concave head that will recess as much as possible in the ball guide when tight. I've never been able to find one that is perfect but took one that was close to the dremel and it is close enough now.

I used a rivet. If I need a new rubber I will drill out rivet.

That large nut and bolt will scratch up the ball. This screw will sit flush.
