    Good day,

    I just picked up a Stargate and loving this game, but need some help with the auto plunger, as it is not launching the balls up the ramp. The part looks broken, Ive looked everywhere online and can not find this part. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

    Update: bent and soldered, worked for about 10 games and broke again. Anyone have an extra laying around, i checked marco and some other sites and no one carries it.

    Soldering won't cut it. It will need to be welded for the repair to hold.

    You can try checking with PBResource.com to see if they have any.

    Solder is way to brittle. Bring it to your local auto mechanic or tool head. Someone near by is bound to have a tig welder or something comparable. I recommend tig as its good for light weight metals.

    Try pbresource.com - http://www.pbresource.com/Stargate.html. Lot's of parts for Gottlieb pins. If you don't see the part, shoot them an email. They respond quickly.

    PBResource does not have it. I already checked since mine was broken. Somebody attempted a repair on mine that is partially working. They added a piece that bridges the two arms, but it interferes with the plunger. I found one here: https://www.jtamusements.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=1201
