I may need the Bug Warrior stepper motor (part #: 041-5062-00) that was used in Starship Troopers, Stern's Playboy and High Roller Casino. It's out of stock everywhere online and I have not been able to find one.

I'm having issues with the one I have in SST where the bug warrior's getting stuck and the threaded screw flopping around inside the motor. Looking for a possible replacement.

For reference, in Playboy, it's called "Drop Screen Stepper". In High Roller Casino it's just listed as "Stepper Motor" although with a different part number (041-5062-01).

The only information I can find is this:

Haydon Switch & Instrument, Inc. Stepper Motor
12v D.C. 4.6W (041-5062-00), Series 36000:
1.4"ø (Non-Captive Shaft not incl.) HSI #36864-12
(Unipolar) Travel per Step: .004 Step Angle: 15°

Anyone familiar with this motor?

Yeah I saw that, but don't want to put in that much because the mount, rails and all other hardware is decent enough and probably won't ever require a swap. :/

I tore apart the motor and there's nothing obviously wrong with it, visually. But I can't easily inspect the coils nor test them.

Make sure the two switches are operating properly. They tell the board when the bug is all the way forward and all the way backwards. Without those, there are some weird behaviors.

The issue I ended up having was that the header connector on the main board has a bad solder joint. If I wiggle the cable (I forget which it is at the moment), the motor comes to life and works fine along with all the segments that were out on the playfield displays. A wiggle and the segments go out as well as the motor functioning properly.
