See the attached picture. I'm missing the gate that blocks access to the bonus mushroom bumper on my Gold Rush. This type uses a wire that goes down through the playfield to be actuated at the appropriate time. Have one for sale?

Are you missing the bracket? gate? actuator?

Maybe some part numbers will help you?
From the Bally 1966 catalog:

Thanks Jeff - I haven't see that particular part sheet before. I'm looking for the complete gate-- everything above the playfield and the actuating wire.

An update to this... I have been able to track down all of the parts needed *except* the M-1272-10 wire as pictured above in the image jeffc provided.

Any help in acquiring this part would be greatly appreciated!

Could probably fabricate one from piano wire. I have done this numerous times.

As a last resort, I will try something like that, but surely someone has one that is laying around unused and unloved that they would like to find a new home for

Bump. Anybody got one of these gates in their pile of parts? Know of a source for a correct replacement?

Let me try this a different way... anybody have one of these gates who would be willing to make a piano wire copy for me?

Just run to the nearest hobby store, buy some piano wire and start bending.should only take a short time to do it.

I know the front shape but don't know how the rest of it is supposed to look.

I'm going to mark this as resolved. I never did come up with an original, but I was able to fix it nonetheless. I realized that the image in the catalog was the correct size, so I was able to bend the front correct specifications. From there it was trial and error to get it to open to the correct height, but still come down far enough to prohibit the ball from passing the gate when it wasn't supposed it. It was a little tricky, but I've finally got it sorted out.
