    Do I risk any damage to a popbumper by plaing a few games without the metal yoke?

    I Want to play a few games to make sure I don't need anymore parts before I place an order.

    If I were you I would just deactivate that coil by just unsoldering one of the two wires feeding it man.

    Better order new fiber AND metal yokes all the way around, especially if you are going to run without the protection of the metal one.

    Thanks guys! Exactly the info I needed!

    Instead of de-soldering, you could just put a piece of electric tape between the bumper switch contacts to temporarily keep it from activating. I agree with vid though. Any new machine I purchase requires at least a new purchase of flipper rebuild kits and all bumper yokes.

    Awesome suggestion! I try to do as little soldering as possible in the house. I already rebuilt the flippers, but wasn't aware of the pop bumper suggestion. I'll order the yokes for the other ones on my next order. Thanks!
