    Hi all, I have been on this forum a few years now, but haven’t posted much. I finally got my second machine, and I’m working on my first real “shop out” (my first game needed a few things but was mostly looked after). I may have many questions along the way, and I will come back to this post to add new questions.
    First up, there are small rubber caps the hold down the playfield plastics. They are threaded like screws. Are these okay to clean in the ultrasonic, or is I best to replace with new? They seem like they would dissolve over time, but are sturdy enough now to lightly squeeze and no cracking develops (so far). They are the originals, this game has apparently never been cleaned up since 1979. Thanks!

    Those are post cap rubbers, AKA chesterfields. They aren;t threaded, they've just been molded because they were on so long.

    You can acquire new caps from vendors like Titan Pinball:

    Another option is to use a 6-32 acorn nut. I like shiny things.

    Buy new, they'll look much better

    They’re $0.10 each. Just replace them. Go to pinwiki and read up on the recommenced work that you should do for this generation of game. Every generation of games has its issues, no matter the manufacturer, and this guide will guide you through the process
