Quoted from Triball:

Looking for LEDs for my Sopranos. Wonder if I should just get a complete kit or buy them individually. Anyone have a LED-chart or an list of bulbs you have ordered for yours? I have some other pins as well which I also plan to upgrade, so I might go for a bulk order of different colors. Trying to save some bucks instead of buying several kits. Thanks!

I'll get you the list of the ones I purchased from comet. It was not a kit. Give me a day or two and I'll have the list posted.

Alright here's what I purchased from comet pinball. I chose not to replace the two slingshot flashers, the two pop bumper flashers and the flasher underneath the bing girls. I had purchased 5smd LEDs for them but I found that the incandescent bulbs in those were brighter than the LEDs.

Here's the list

Playfield Inserts. These were colour matched to the inserts. All bulbs for the playfield inserts are 1smd non ghosting clear LED bulbs. For the whites, I went with Sunshine white but you may want to check the different options for yourself.

White bayonet 44 X 8
White wedge 555 X 26
Red bayonet 44 X 9
Red wedge 555 X 8
Yellow wedge 555 X 2
Blue wedge 555 X 5
Purple wedge 555 X 3
Green wedge 555 X 7
Orange wedge 555 X 2

For the bulb inside the Stugots I went with a frosted 2smd blue bayonet 444. The bulb that is stock is white but I liked the idea of blue given that the boat is in water.
For the bulbs on the episode sign (arson, horse race ...) I went with frosted orange 2smd wedge 555 X 5

Flashers

Cool White 5smd #89 X 6 (under the truck, in the back panel, under plastic on right, under plastic on left)
Red 5smd #89 X 2 (safe flasher and super jackpot flasher)

For the GI I went with

Sunlight White frosted 2smd bayonet 44 X 50 (this will give you a few extras) most GI bulbs use this bulb.
Yellow frosted 2smd bayonet 44 X 4 (shooter lane bulbs) here you can go with white if you prefer but original bulbs are yellow. LEDs show the color a lot more. Maybe you can tell from the pics I posted.
Sunlight White frosted 2smd wedge 555 X 2 (coin door)
Natural White Insane Bright 5smd wedge 555 X 3 (these are for the 3 spotlights on the playfield)

Good luck with the upgrade! It was really easy to do in my opinion. An hour or two and you should have them replaced. Most of them are easily accessible from underneath the playfield.

One of my strippers appears to have split in half. Nothing hit it or anything which is weird. Anyone ever deal with this? The stripper is still attached to the poll. See attached. Right at her bikini line is where it split.

Disregard. Noticed another pinsider had same issue a bit ago. I can use the same recommendation that was given for them.

Just acquired a Sopranos and I love it. However, the strippers don’t twirl. They try to move a little so I replaced the belt. Still don’t move. Any ideas? I know the motor is hard to find. Thanks!

Is the replacement belt dried out and stiff like the old belt?
Does the motor turn?

Prop up the playfield and run the mech in test mode. Are the gears rotating with the belt slipping, or not rotating at all?

You can’t get the original ones. But check amazon for mini stripper doll or equivalent.. you can get something close.

It broke the replacement belt also. It was the original replacement that came with the machine. Seemed a bit stiff. I believe the motor turns since the girls do move a little bit. I ordered 3 new belts from Marco so we’ll see what happens. I don’t see how a smooth belt like that can have any grip though.

I'd say you'll be fine with the belts
