Help!

I am doing a ground up restore on a Gottlieb Fun Fair from 1968, this is the Italian version of the more commonly know Fun Land.

A few Italian AAB games from this era, instead of awarding 'extra balls' had an 'outhole diverter gate' as can be seen in the 1st photo next to the outhole..my entire unit under the playfield is missing, but have the diverter gate still present.

Can anybody help with the coil number for this? Also a photo from the side of this unit, pretty sure it will be standard Gottlieb kicker mech unit.

I would guess you are correct. I doubt they made a special part for this instead of using a part they already had.

Technically, it's the Italian export version of "Fun Park" which is the domestic add-a-ball version. "Fun Land" is a replay version, so it would be set up quite differently that the other three versions. This one is a "Tivoli" though, which is basically the same game as "Fun Fair", but with different artwork.

It would probably use either an A-1496, A-4893, or A-5194 coil.

Oh, ok. Looks to be the same as "Fun Park" except for the ball in play light holes at the lower left.

decided to leave the timber..and yes clear coated..with the bare timber just have never liked the results and especially when they get painted light brown..

i scrape of the old varnish that has yellowed/browned with the back side chisel. lightly sand the wood and then clear. it is a lot of work but looks much better.
it takes some practice so it is good to test it on a wall hanger first
i am with you, painting the wood with a wood color just look wrong.
