    Getting this 1977 BAlly bingo game in shape and have a few parts needed. Best place for these:

    Red plastic cover over the ball launcher,

    Two bolts that hold glass bar down. They have wing nuts on them to hold bar in place. BTW mine is snapped off, how the heck do you get inside the bar (metal and wood combo part) to get to the bolt head?

    The plate onto which the balls on launched on to. Has lines for accurate plunging. My plate is beat to heck.

    Pins (that look like finishing nails) on the playfield
    Legs and bolts
    Leg mounting plate (bolts screw into these)
    New power cord
    coin door, coin switch
    All buttons on the front of the coin door. Anyone make new shiny nice ones?

    Thanks for any ideas !

    Some easy, some tough:

    Red lifter cover: Marco Specialties used to carry the plain lifter covers used for this game http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/C-153A

    You might email them and ask if they plan to get more in stock.

    Bolts: I think you'll likely destroy the metal cladding to get at those bolts. Probably easier to find a lockbar. Joe Shope is probably your guy. His contact info is on the suppliers page on bingo.cdyn.com.

    Those plates are almost universally beat up. That's a tough one. A man in the Netherlands has reproduced them, but importing one might be very very expensive.

    Legs and bolts - Joe Shope again is probably your first choice here. Bolts you can use any pinball leg bolt, but the legs are specific to the later bingos (metal with extra anti-cheat welded plate).

    Power cord - Steve Young (pbresource.com) sells power cords that are universal. If you want a flat one like the original, you could use an extension cord and cut off the female end.

    Coin door: Joe Shope. Coin switch: just about any supplier - Bally used microswitches. To test your switch, but your meter on resistance and click the switch down. Measure across the connected tabs underneath and see if the meter shows 0 Ohms. When you let go of the switch, this number should increase.

    Buttons: not really. You can check with Joe, but often, you're better off repainting. High Flyer has only the red button, correct?
