Can anyone tell me what sort of posts/rubbers should go on the inside of the horseshoe (the ones either side of the gobble hole)?
I've not got into mine yet but can see there is no rubber on one and one of the posts appears to be snapped off. What do I need to order?
Thanks

They use T rubbers. PBR sells a machine screw post that can probably be used too, assuming there's nothing underneath. See "Tee-Rubber #6" here: http://www.pbresource.com/postscrew.html

Ah great thanks. Once I get the thing open I'll check if the posts are just screwed into the wood or bolted through. Thanks

Just FYI, the term gobble hole denotes a hole where the ball disappears under the playfield and does not kick back into play. Essentially, the player loses the ball. They are usually found on late 50's and early 60s machines that actually used 5 balls that would collect into a trough under the playfield.

Spanish Eyes was designed with a kick-out hole, sometimes called an eject hole.
