I have a Williams Aztec that has a broken back box, will a Williams Grand Prix back box work as a replacement? They appear to be the same when comparing pictures of reel location, credit location on the back glass, and were both produced in 1976. Any help greatly appreciated

Wooden cabinet, yes. Insides, no.

Curious, do the jones plugs line up? Same number of holes? Sadly they never list the connectors in the schematics... There's nothing game specific in either backbox that I can remember, so it makes me wonder just how different they actually are

will let you know once it is together, picking up the back box at Allentown show, this is my 1st machine just parts shopping for the obvious components needed before it goes to get shopped.

Question, Are you replacing it because the wooden head is roached? Or is it the inside electronics bad? Your innards should fit in the Grand Prix head.

Hey Pappy. Love your user name. Guessing you are a RUSH fan. Have two sons named Alex and Neil. My friends still give me crap.

Poppapin, Yes, replacing the wooden back box as the machine suffered trauma prior to me buying it, box is in pieces, but back glass is whole so hoping the scoring reels etc are not damaged, have not had them tested yet

I've got some spare score reel units if any do turn out to be beyond repair

That's some good luck! (Even if it was just taken apart after the fact, an impact is bad enough regardless)

Thanks Zacaj will keep you in mind if any need replacing, will contact you.

Yes Otaku it has a nice play field just the back box and will get a new back glass as original is in 1 piece but all paint is bubbled and peeled off
