Help save a TZ, looking for Restoration parts

Added: September 4th, 2019 Ended: September 18th, 2019



Item description

After finishing my Sorcerer restoration, I think I may becoming the patron saint of horrible looking pinball machines in need of restoration. Thanks to a good friend of mine, a very badly abused Twilight Zone will soon be in my possession. It is a German re-import, and it got picked over a little bit before it landed back here in the states.

The machine has a restorable cabinet, and playfield, but I am really hoping that someone out there has a parts machine or stash that they would be willing to sell me the following parts from:

1. A-16326 Ball Guide Assembly. This is the lower exit to the Power mini-playfield. It is missing on mine.

2. I need the ramp guards for the middle ramp. I think I have located a source for these overseas, but I want to see if I can get a set state side first.

3. I need the opto harness from under the playfield. This harness runs from the 10 opto driver board, to each of the optos in the game. It should have 4 plugs where it interfaces with the opto driver board, and a connection for each of the opto from under the playfield. This is harness is separate from the switch matrix harness.

I am sure I will need other parts as I get into this thing, but these are the biggies I know for certain I need.

Ok, I think I have located most of the parts I originally listed. However, I still need of a couple of switches with harness. My main plastic ramp is missing both of the switches. Does anyone have these two assemblies for sale?

Ive used Mark for years. Pinball spare parts Aust is good stuff!
Placed an order last week. Only supplier with Pinball magic parts i needed.
With the Australian dollar so low right now it was cheaper than Marcos. I got a ton of a stuff shipped for a $100 bucks. Including 2 full sling shot assemblies and a diverter assembly. Plus bonus parts and springs and what not.
