I'm helping a buddy get their Black Pyramid back in shape. When we cracked it open we noticed the previous owner had not only put Williams bats on the machine, but also completely swapped the flipper mech to a Williams version(see pics below). I'd like to put the correct (or more correct) flippers and assembly back in this machine, but I'm not sure what to get since most sites don't have a full assembly for this era of Bally games (I guess they used linear ones?).
Before we knew what was under the hood I purchased a flipper rebuild kit for this era of Bally machines: ebay.com link (see pic of it on the playfield). Being pretty new to this, it's a bit over my head. My questions are:
+ Should I just buy a whole new assembly? What one is closer to the stock one that came with Black Pyramid and compatible? https://www.pinballlife.com/search.html?Search=flipper%20assembly
+ Using the rebuild kit I have, what additional parts would I need to buy? (I'll need bats, but what else?)
+ I found this thread, is something like this worth trying? https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/vids-guide-to-upgradingrebuilding-flippers/page/11#post-1855100
I've taken a few pics to give you a sense of what I'm working with. Thanks in advance for any help or guidance here! Feel free to ask any additional questions if there's anything I can help clarify.
