Hi!

Checking in after 4 years hibernation.
I just got a Whirlwind. great machine. I need to change some switches in the ball through and the lock lane as i think one of them is causing problems.

my question is, are all switches 5647-12073-xx the same scitch with different wires on??
also can i use 1N4007 instead of the 1N4001

It's just a real pain to order wrong parts
Thanks!

You can use a 1N4007 or 1N4004 in place of the 1N4001. I don't use 1N4001 types. They are lower voltage and if accidentally get used on a coil..........BOOM. The 1N4007 or 1N4004 work fine on switch and lamp matrixes.

If they look like this - https://www.pinballlife.com/index.php?p=product&id=830 yes. Different actuators on them, you can swap the old ones over.

Get wires back in the same spots and diodes facing the same direction.

I only buy 1N4007 diodes. Price is the same as less capable diodes so why not...
