I'm slowly shopping a XENON head and one of the hacks from a previous owner was to replace the head locking mechanism with a bracket that you have to unscrew to access the head. Obviously this sucks, but all the parts are missing from the lock mechanism. I have detailed pictures of the parts from another collector in the UK, but looking through the Bally parts manual and browsing through Marco hasn't gotten me very far in locating parts numbers or figuring out if this is even something I can fix or find parts for. Anyone have any advice on tracking these down? The parts manual doesn't look like it shows a mechanism to lock the head.

The back box has a "hook" cam. Third coast pinball has reproduced it...
the "stem" that the cam fits around I do not know.

Not sure if this mech was used in other games. Time to start posting and searching. Good luck. Someone has to have one.

It was used in Eight Ball Deluxe, Space Invaders, Xenon and Vector

Thank you. That doesn’t make it any easier. Although lots of EBD made.

Quoted from Nhpolarbear:

3rd generation... the one with the swing open back box door.
Like Eight Ball Champ.
