    On many Bally/Williams 90's games, they use a layered flipper ball guide, with two metal layers and the plastic on the top. At the non-flipper end, there's usually one or two screws, with little metal spacers that cover the screw between the playfield and the metal, and the two metal layers. What the heck is the part number or name for that little metal spacer? Can't find it anywhere in the manual.

    I have been looking for the same things, three of them for a Terminator 2. They're part number 02-4020 "support post" and no one anywhere carries them, I've been searching all week with no luck.

    I just posted a thread on getting exploded parts views. I run into the same problem, not know what the heck something is or a part number. Exploded views of games would be nice.

    would small stainless tubing work cut to length ?

    Quoted from luch:

    Like stainless brake lining maybe? Not sure of the outside diameter though.

    A quick fix until you get the part is to stack small washers.

    I used a similar cheat on my high speed:

    They're also supposed to get a washer underneath, 1/4" OD x 1/8" ID x 1/32" thick, so that screwing them down doesn't chew into the playfield. Can't find those anywhere either.

    Well, at least I have the part number now. The drawing in the manual is incredibly unclear as to what it is. But yeah, if anyone knows where to find them, I could use a good half-dozen...
