    I have the same game. I don't have a parts catalog, but if there's anything I can help you with, let me know.

    Personally, I'm trying to figure out what the appropriate E26 medium base bulbs that go down in the bottom shooter alley should be. I have the fluorescent tube style backlight, but over the years someone replaced the E26 bulbs with some poorly painted incandescents that look bad when they light up. I am thinking of going with some colored LED medium base bulbs, but might opt for another lbacklight as well since the UV effect looks so cool.

    Not sure if this helps, but it's a convenient list inside my cabinet of the various coils and motors:

    Quoted from heatwave:

    Plus it is such a PITA to work on since you very often have to remove the whole bottom unit

    Yeah, that's going to be. A problem for me too!

    Mine has worked okay for years, but has mostly sat in storage. Now it's freaking out and I think my ball motor needs some serious work. Plus replacing those bulbs in the lower section (the little 44's) under the target cover is a mystery. Mine even has some short instructions on how to remove it to replace he bulbs, but I don't think it's going to be easy!

    Also, I've only had one original "planet" ball. Really hard to find the exact replacements! Any idea how many they originally had?

    Here's a few more images of my game....

    Quoted from heatwave:

    Mine came without any balls. Racquet balls are the same size. Been taking a break from working on this, time to get back to it.

    I got mine about 20 years back and it had one original (as near as I can tell; just pink with no markings) and one racquetball. The pink original ball is dried out and deflated, and the racquetball seems a bit too hard.

    Finding original or similar balls is pretty tough.

    I ended up trying these balls out. They have a "planet" look to them and seem slightly fluorescent under the black light and not quite as hard as the old racquetball:

    Quoted from heatwave:

    When I hit the link, it simply went to Amazon log-in. What is the name of the ball and I can search it.
    Thanks for the input, like the idea that they are slightly fluorescent.

    Sorry about that! I think I shared the link to my order page instead of the product page!

    I think I have the right link this time, but just in case they are called "Sky Bounce Rubber Ball Rainbow"

    amazon.com link »

    BTW, I did locate what appears to be actual Midway rubber balls at Johns Jukes/Flippers.com. He seems to have a bit more vintage EM stuff than anywhere else I've found. Unfortunately none of the parts indicate if they are Space Gun parts and they are usually listed for other Midway games (baseball, driving, etc). This is why that Space Gun parts catalog would be useful, otherwise you have to guess that it's an identical part!

    Oh, these potentially authentic balls are $10 apiece. At this point I think the SkyBounce balls actually look better than the sickly pink originals and you get 12 for just about the same price.

    I don't know why I didn't think of this before! Here's a photo of the deflated 'original' ball and a crazy new 'sky bounce' ball.
