FYI, if the Bakelite is all still there, that can be fixed by using super glue. Looks like you would just have to square up one of the metal contacts.

Quoted from Hitch9:

Looking for a Gottlieb 10 pin female connector like the one below. Let me know if someone has one, and how much. It can be shipped to my son in Arizona. Thanks !
One of the last pieces needed to get my Gottlieb Flip a Card working again.

I thought about that, and I may do that as a "plan B", if I can't find a used one somewhere. Thanks for the tip.

Pretty sure this is Pinsider "Tuna Delite" here on Pinside. Great guy to deal with. I bought a Bank-A-Ball from him about two years ago.

Negatory. He doesn't have the green one. My brother works there, and he asked Steve personally. I don't know why he doesn't have the green one, because I think he does have the red and yellow ones.

#3423 2 years ago

I was look for a green one too. Not many games need a green. He said he may do some the next batch of green. But he need to run low on his current stock 1st.

Looking for the backside guts for a Williams EM coin door from 1976. Just need all the stuff that hangs on the backside including lamp sockets and male Jones plug with wiring. I'll take the entire coin door even in rough shape as the front side on mine is nice just everything behind is missing.

Looking for a player unit or part of a player unit for a 1977 Gottlieb Vulcan.
I am needing the diamond shaped bakelite piece on the player unit. it is the first piece you see on the unit.
Surly other machines from that era have the same player unit on them too, just not sure which ones.

Steve at PBR can make one up from original docs, probably $50...

To my surprise, I couldn't find Vulcan in the parts lists of the '78, '80 or '82 Gottlieb parts catalogs (*). The '78 catalog does cover games from Jungle Life through Super Spin and reveals a pattern in the parts numbers for the Player Unit Wiper which is what you're looking for. In the '78 catalog at least all the 4 player games use a player unit wiper with part number B-12566, while all the 2 player games use a B-12568.

While I can't prove it, it seems likely that the wiper from any mid-70s 4 player Gottlieb game (like the Bronco above) would work for you.

(*) For extra credit, does anyone know if there are Parts List tables for Vulcan or any of the Gottlieb EM games after Super Spin?

As far as I know, PBR is closed this week. It looks like you also need the three spoked metal piece that should be placed on the disc before screwing it on.

I have a 'Parts And Price Supplement to Vol. P' which is the 1978 parts catalog. It is only 12 pages and covers both EM and SS games. There are just a few items that are game specific including Strange World, Joker Poker and Dragon plastic sets, Flying Football, Musical Note, Joker and Dragon targets and a few other spinners and targets.
I do not see a player unit wiper or any of the parts numbers you mentioned

#3436 2 years ago

FYI, when I contacted Steve about a cracked-in-half player unit wiper of mine, he suggested I glue it with this:
pACE3-1169366enh-z7 (resized).jpg

And he lamented the design/userError of the fold-down player unit which if operated in the down position can catch and destroy that wiper.

I think I've got about 50 plays on my glued wiper and it hasn't broken again. Your mileage may vary.

#3437 2 years ago

I have the player units from a scrapped jungle queen (likely) and a crosstown (unlikely). I these work, LMK. I'd want $50 for the unit shipped CONUS only.

Good point. I've had good luck too repairing fiber disks if it's just the fiber board that's broken. You can reinforce the repair by gluing a shim on the back of the wiper to cover the break. Old fiber flipper links would be a good option. Here's an example:

Hi gang,

I can use the pictured lane guide which is 2 1/8" from screw hole to screw hole. I know these are available new (though slightly different color) but I just need one so I'm trying find a vintage match first.

Thanks!

It looks like it MIGHT work but it appears to have two cracks repaired on it that is visible when you enlarge the pic. and it appears to have a couple of the wipers soldered on solid.
thanks for showing me that, I'll have to look into the Bronco unit possibly working

$100? That is crazy--you could pick up an entire parts machine for that price to get what you need.
