Hi guys. I have a dead pop bumper coil that needs replacing. It’s a g23 750-dc coil and I’m not sure what to replace it with. I found this one on Marco specialties: https://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/G-23-750 but I’m not sure if it will work because it doesn’t say it’s a dc coil. Any ideas?

Usually DC coils mean they have diodes on them, but since it's an EM the diode isn't needed anyway (although it wouldn't hurt). I'd add one if the original had one

You should check Amusements Plus in the city, they might have one on hand, save you the shipping. If not I might also have one sitting around...

I was also looking at replacing the bridge rectifier too to see if that helps because the other two coils are a bit weak

They've probably got them too, or I do
