Quoted from vec-tor:

Ding, Ding... Solid State playfields are cut different than the E.M. version.
CPR playfields drilled through the playfield for the S.S. pop bumper body bracket...
They should have just put dimple marks on the backside of the playfield.

Yes there are marks to show where to mount the bracket ut they drilled all the way thru the pf. why why why why why?

Got some plates yesterday, now to mount them proper like.

Quoted from Oldgoat:

I'm sure you know this, but just in case. They used actual guns for many, perhaps all, of those games. Therefore, you might have better luck looking for a stock to the gun that was on that game as opposed to looking for a stock for the game, if that makes sense. If I recollect correctly, the stock on the Midway Capt'n Kidd I had was from an old Winchester 22...I'll see if I wrote down the model somewhere.

The butt of my stock is broken off, but what's left isn't matching any actual gun stock. There isn't a notch on mine for a bolt action. I've checked models from Winchester, Remington, and Ruger so far. For the shooting galleries, they didn't use the barrel off an actual gun. I know on the Capt'n Kidd and games like it there is usually make and manufacturer marking on the barrell, but for the shooting galleries that doesn't seem to be the case. But definitely let me know what kind yours has, I might be able to make it work.

my rifle was replaced with a stock from a short .22 rifle and the parts were just retro fitted into the gun which actually fit perfect. Off the top of my head I think it’s a Remington but I have a Chicago Coin moonshot rifle arcade. You could pick up a cheap stock off eBay. You can find some as cheap as .99 cents but this will give you an idea what I’m talking about:
ebay.com link » Mossberg Model 42 B 22 Rifle Wood Stock

My 1956 Williams Crossfire used a Marlin A100 22 Caliber rifle.
My 1973 CC Twin Rifle uses Remington rifles.

I am missing one of the targets for the Roto target for Flipper Cowboy/Cowpoke. Anyone have one?

Need some advice from the EM guys/gals. I have about 15 populated PF's left, many EM's of WMS and Gottlieb. Shipping the entire PF with parts is too problematic, but I'm thinking about stripping them, and selling the parts separate. For EM part value, what's the best way to remove parts, since many of the roto's, steppers, coils, etc are soldered to the harness. Cut them at the solder point? Does the harness have any value? I've seen some wanted ads for jones plugs, and at least one person has expressed interest to me in the cloth wiring, so best way to preserve their usefulness? I don't want to get strictly in the parts business, selling a single piece here and there. I'd prefer to just box up the major parts and say "here", all the parts for an XYZ game. Realizing I'd get less value, but less time consuming and shipping.

I'd cut them at the solder point. Yes the wiring harness has value. I was the one the inquired about a harness, but I have since found one. Thanks for remembering though! The harness I bought had all the components cut at their solder points and the harness was still in one piece. I know too-many-pins normally sells cloth wire by the pound. Guys into guitars and old sound amps love the cloth wire too.

Anyone know where to buy Bally hairpin clips part #m-254-1 (3/32")?

I could use a few extra. These are the type used on the score wheels, the smallest ones.

TIA,

Ken

I sell a bunch of parts on ebay under ‘mevoriginals’. Here is my advice:

Sell in bulk as you mentioned otherwise you’ll be at this half your life. Sell by part type not machine bundles

1) Cut steppers off but leave a 1/2 inch of wire so folks can see what color wires was connected. Price $20-$25 each. Williams are the least desirable

2) For very large relay banks I remove all relays springs and such. Combine parts with another and sell in bulk for $20

3) for individual relays assemblies figure $20 bulk of 10 per brand

4) Gather all male/female Jones plugs for $20 in bulk of 10/10

5) Rototargets go for around $75

6) Flipper assembly pairs go for $20-$30. Gottlieb and solid state best

7) Pops assemblies go for $20-$30 for 2-3 depending on condition

playfield posts - I sell combined from 3 playfields for $20 unless they are the older marble style or the metal ones $30-$40 for those in bulk

9) Stand up targets I usually sell 12-15 for $20

10) Switches: one box from 5 playfields for $20 if you want to go through the effort

Aprons: $15-$50 depending on apron. Most are a hard sell even at $15

Plastics sets : some have no value others go for $50 plus. If you can flatten them correctly they will sell for more. Best sellers are slings which go for $25 and ones that are near drop targets

Lane guides: 30 or so for $20

Good luck! Prepare to spend a weekend plus stripping them all. Get free boxes from the post office online (love there 7x7x6 box .. most items in bulk except plastics/aprons I described above fit in there .. the larger in medium flat rate boxes). They stack to the ceiling so it will be easy to store all the stuff until it sells

Awesome, thanks for taking the time to do that! How about I just box it all up and send it to you for 30c on the dollar

Sounds like a Road trip!!!!

Quoted from Wmsfan:

He's welcome to it...BlueSpin just made the trip from there. The Populated PF's are $50 a piece. I figure there's at least $200 worth of parts on each one, plus another $20 to $30 for wall hanging art. I've got about 20 of them left. $1K for $4K worth of goodies

I am looking for an old original white rollover for a mid 50s Gottlieb to replace a non-original red rollover in a Twin Bill. I have a new one from pbresource, but the color is too white compared to the other four original white ones.

These are the ones that have posts that are attached to the spoon (seems like part of the base was melted to attach it to the spoon). Sometimes the melted plastic that holds the rollover to the spoon breaks, but I have been able to reuse them by reaming out a hole in the base of the post and tapping the hole for a screw.

I have a bunch of these from a Williams Blastoff. If anyone can confirm they're the same thing, I'll shoot you one.

#5471 2 days ago

I haven't seen these from a Williams machine, but given that pbresource sells "old style rollover buttons" for machines from the 50s through 70s (from pbresource website: "Used on games from the 1950's, 1960's, and 1970's."), I suspect they should work.

Anyone have a Kicker Arm Assembly for Capt. Fantastic? Can probably use arm from other pins from 1976 era. Here is a pic of the broken one I have. It is from the Left side kicker. I searched some retailer pages but could not find this one. I have a similar one but the EOS switch arm is at the end of the arm not in the middle.
Or point me in the direction of a reseller that has these arms.

Thanks
