I'm looking for the three post sleeves around the kickout area on Stern Dracula.

On the playfield drawing, the post listed for the kickout area is incorrect, as far as I can tell.

Three posts like this are used:

And they each have a thin, white, hard plastic sleeve over them. The problem is that they all have bad divots in them from ball strikes.

I think a typical nylon/plastic spacer would be a workable substitute.

You will often find these sleeves under playfield plastics, especially in the upper-arch area, as standoffs to keep the plastics level over larger areas. Many Bally/Stern games used them. It is possibly this part from Marco: http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/254-5068-00

Thanks, the next time I put an order together from marco, I'll see if we have a winner.

Looking for the same, wondering if that part from Marcos worked well for you ?

They were out of stock (and looks like still are), so I haven't been able to yet.

For reference I did manage to snag 3 of those posts when they were in stock, now out again, and they are significantly larger diameter and length than all the other posts on the Dracula playfield. I guess had I paid attention to the diagram on Marcos I could have figured that out.
