Complete kits are available from most of the major parts suppliers. They include everything you need plus a diagram to replace all of the rubber parts. Some are even advertised as tune up kits with additional parts (lamps, polish, etc).

I suggest either The Pinball Resource (http://www.pbresource.com/) or Marco Specialties (https://www.marcospecialties.com/).

For what it’s worth, Pinball Resource is the place to go for all Gottlieb OEM parts.

I feel like those diagrams are completely wrong half the time I get them. Wouldn't count on it being useful

Most people already have rubbers on hand anyway

I can't comment on Far Out but I have discovered in 4/5 kits I have purchased in the past that I am missing at least 2-3 rubber pieces or the measurements are wrong on some. I typically use the manual's guide for a parts list (if applicable) and have long since started having "a bunch" of different size rubber parts on hand to fill in the blanks or change out the wrong sizes from kits I buy.

If you only have one game I would suggest buying the kit and crossing your fingers.

I usually use the instruction manual for sizes and just order extra of the next size down and up, I order my rubbers from Titan Pinball.

Depends on who you buy them from. I think the OP is asking because he doesn’t have them.

The rubber kits I’ve gotten from Pinball Resource are super lively and they sometimes give me extra. Not sure if that’s on purpose but that’s better than the opposite.
