Quoted from John_in_NC:

I’m pretty sure I have these, I’ll take a look. I sent your baseball wire guides but I think they swam them down it took so long.

USPS normally 2 weeks in my experience John. I also use a 'US shipping address' Coy Comgateway out of Portland, OR and remarkably if I give a release on a Friday I have the package following the weekend Mon/Tues via DHL.

Have been unable to find these, sorry. If I find them I’ll reach out and see if you still need them.

Bingo part needed for a Barrel o Fun. I need the switch lifter which is attached to the relay armature plate. The armature plate is metal of course but the switch lifter is very, very, brittle fiber material. I need at least one of the fiber pieces and maybe a couple of spares. Any help is greatfully appreciated.

Thanks

Looking for 2 #2 decals for a gottlieb roto target. The set I found was short 2 #2’s. Hoping someone has 1 or 2 extra from a restore.

Based on your picture it does not appear you are missing 2 twos,maybe a 2 and a 5. I dont think the target would have 2 and 2 next to each other. Either way good luck in your search..

I agree it’s odd, this was the original picture. Had 5 2 point targets on this roto target though.

What about printing up some numbers using waterslide decals and poly over them? I did them on all my blank Sure Shot inserts and they turned out nice. Just had to find the correct font.

I’m able to reproduce those triangles using epoxy resin. The result is an exact copy. I can do some marble effects as well. See pic 1

I do have a bunch of original Bakelite flipper buttons as well. See pic 2

I would like to ask if someone may have for sale (any condition would be fine) either a B-7193 or B-7194 coin chute/cover for a Gottlieb coin door in the mid 60's game era. Here is what these two parts looks like. Thank you in advance for any help!

Bell shells for early Williams machines and early Gottlieb bell assembly wanted.

First, I am looking for bell shells with diameter of 4" and diameter somewhere between 2-1/2 and 2-7/8" for early 1950s Williams machines. These are for two missing bell shells from a Williams Nifty (1950) (that are shown below in photo of a machine that has them--photo from ipdb). I haven't been able to confirm the size of the smaller bell shell but based on the length of the armature on the stepper (and rough calculations of sizes from the photo), it looks like it has a diameter somewhere between 2-1/2 and 2-7/8" or so.

image-8 (resized).jpeg

Second, I am also reviving an older post from a few years back for a 5" bell assembly for a 1953 Gottlieb Grand Slam as shown in the photo below (photo is from a 1954 Gottlieb that has the correct striker assembly in it).

bell_photo (resized).jpeg

Pinball Resource has a reproduction of a newer version of this assembly (see http://www.pbresource.com/news/gtb-b9359.jpg), but this newer assembly is too large for where it needs to go in Grand Slam (right behind the 10k stepper). The main difference between the one that was originally on Grand Slam and the reproduction is how they are mounted in the backbox--the newer one is mounted off the board (with four screws) while the correct one is mounted nearly flush to the board (with two screws).

Here's a photo (from ipdb) that shows the bell assembly in a Grand Slam.

Yes, thanks newmantjn! It's a perfect match for the missing one on my Grand Slam! I am working with psd4me to get it here. AlexF too is sending a spare 4" shell he has.

I am still trying to find a source for and the actual size of a small bell shell that Williams used on early 1950s machines (seems like it should be smaller than 3"--see post 9627 above), but am extremely happy to have found two of the three bell-related items I am looking for!

I'm looking for the Brake plate for a Flash Motor Unit on a 1972 Fireball . It's the plate that mounts behind a coil, and when the coil releases, the bent tab on the top of the plate engages the sprocket on the Flash Unit and stops it. You can see the tab is worn away where it engages with the sprocket, so it drifts to a stop. I checked PBR, and they don't list it. If there's a repair for this, short of welding, I'm all ears!

I have had to have that part spot brazed/welded... Rebuilt the unit and used a lot of new lube
for the teeth gear. One needs to adjust the stop flap so as to just stop the unit teeth.

I was able to shim the bracket that holds the coil with washers to move the saw tooth to a different area on the brake. As insurance, I was able to get that part from JT Amusements. It is part number P-7207-4. It’s not cheap but they are hard to find and space time is a fun game

Anybody have a later gen WMS chime unit? I'm in canada, so shipping might be an issue... but figured I'd check to find out what the total costs might be for what's around.

It would go into a Lucky Ace (1974) machine.

Thank you

Any one have a Bally flipper button, it’s plastic with no housing. Inserts through a plastic bushing mounted to cabinet, uses a c-clip to hold it in place. It’s a 1975 Bally flicker. I’ve ordere the PBR button. It has an outer shell/housing. It doesn’t fit beyond the metal rail. There is one for sale on pinball life however it’s not the right one either. Just need one. It’s an ivory color.

Guys, I'm working on a 1961 Williams Skill Ball. Would anyone happen to have
the Swinging Target motor I could buy (or possibly make a trade for)?
I believe Jolly Jokers (and probably other titles) used the same motor for their
Swinging Targets. If any help, much appreciated.. (T)

Looks like I missed some opportunities recently to pick one up, but I’m sure another will turn up sooner or later.
I have a 1958 Williams Soccer Kick Off that is missing a bell. I assume it was a bell at least.
The coil is there, but no longer contains the coil plunger, due to not having a bell to keep it contained.
Let me know it you have these, or know where I might find these for purchase.
Thanks again everyone!
