Pinball Resource, Sky Jump Drop Targets are sold as a set, 1 thru 7. Took around 75 minutes for me to change them out, and it looks sharp when completed.

Looking for Chicago Coin Sound Stage (or Jukebox) "C" target.

Also, does anyone know if any of the old stern flipper plungers / links are compatible? It looks like 468-2515 (CC sound stage parts list flipper assembly http://mirror2.ipdb.org/files/2243/Chicago_Coin_1976_Sound_Stage_Parts_Catalog.pdf) matches Stern's B-195 (http://www.marcospecialties.com/pinball-parts/B-195-R-1) with just a variation in the flipper arm assembly.

Caught Steve on a good day or you must have had part numbers in hand.

#3563 2 years ago

I love Steve but you got that right John. And be sure to have you customer number ready.

#3564 2 years ago

Need a lower left "sing shot" pf plastic to Jet Spin.

#3565 2 years ago

I am looking for a set of bonus balls for Top Score/300....I understand this might be a tall order. Willing to pay.

Or if anyone knows of a substitute...that would be great too.

Pinball Resource used to have these but I do not see them listed now. Might give Steve a call though.

I thought that a pinsider Mike Vitale aka "Racingpin" was repro-ing these.

#3568 2 years ago

Looking for the latch for the back door lock of a Grand Prix or similar. The piece of metal the lock slots into to hold it shut. Mine has been ripped out at some point....

Actually my claim to fame is producing the bank-a-ball animated pool balls which are more like flags than balls. Those are actually balls that I don't produce. Though you can also get them from a parted out Gottlieb Mibs I believe.

All Hail Mike, we love his balls! er flags.

I did reach out to PBR as they DID used to have them (in red). They do not have them, but have some turquoise ones...but for the life of me I can't figure out what game those would be for originally??

Does anyone know the size of them? Maybe have one you could measure?

Marco has some white balls in various sizes and I would probably rather order white ones than turquoise.

The Gottlieb balls are 1 1/4" diameter.
I seem to remember seeing turquois balls used in some of the 50's upright Genco games. 400, Silver Chest, Golden Nugget and Jumpin' Jacks. Can't trust my memory much any more though. Not sure what the diameter is on those but someone here will know.

I'm looking for a picture of the score card for a Zig Zag.
I tried to start a thread about this, but this is probably a better place to ask.
Thanks!

Hello,
Looking for score reels for a 1963 Gottlieb Sweet Hearts or a way to restore the faces of them. Looks like over the years, lights and wiring scratched them all the way around. They work ok but do not look great. Not sure what reel year range, type to hunt for?
Thank You
Andy

Will see. Tried to attach original size picture. Some of scratches are worn to metal.
Thank You

If you haven't tried to clean them yet, you should, but with caution. I use something like Novus 2, on a clean white rag and carefully clean around the numbers. If you clean the numbers themselves, you may remove the paint. I usually clean around them and then take a light final swipe across the face to remove any surface dirt. They should clean up okay, as long as the drag mark is not actually worn in.

To add here the paint is usually colorfast so you shouldn't have to worry about losing paint but still be careful. Novus 2 works great. And if you have some scratches in the numbers you can touch up with a black enamel paint pen.

The reels themselves can be delicate so don't press too hard or you can actually bend them. From your picture these should clean up fine.

Looking for original instruction cards for Williams Trade Winds and Williams Space Ship.

Scan or photo of Space Ship cards would also be acceptable/appreciated.

I'm aware of Inkochnito's repro card for Trade Winds.

Seeking an aged, white 1-inch round insert. With the number 8 would be great, but I can apply my own artwork. Game is GTB Sure Shot.

Here's a pic of my existing aged insert (7) for color comparison.

Thanks.

If anyone is looking for parts send me a PM.

Looking for a Bally 1966-1967 era coin door skin like used on Six Sticks, Capersville, Bazaar, Rocket III and others. Will buy complete door. Current door has dents. OK if painted. Prefer 3 slot set up. Thanks.

#3586 2 years ago

I'll keep a look out for the Bally door you need. I had 6 NOS door skins but they all sold.

#3587 2 years ago

Speaking of coin doors.. I need a skin to a late 70's Gottlieb "big" door. Jet Spin is the game.

Added over 2 years ago: found!

#3588 2 years ago

Is there a good pinball website/person to get the metal backdoors for Bally EM heads? Im missing them on two of my games, Champ and Air Aces. If not, has anyone personally had these made custom from a business?

#3589 2 years ago

I also need a rear door for a Chicago coin sound stage

Did you ever find a solution to this? My GP has the same problem but I haven't tried to fabricate something yet.

Need a drop target for a 1977 Williams Rancho.

#3593 2 years ago

Looking for a Step unit for a Gottlieb 4 Square. Looks like this one http://www.pbresource.com/springkit/kt-gstep-02.jpg I have a a rusty one that has some cracked metal parts so a replacement would be great! I don't think it needs to be game specific as I do have the discs and wipers from the one I have.

#3594 2 years ago

Need a Williams woodrail coin door suitable for a Disk Jockey. With or without hardware. Repro would be ok, too.

As long as it fits, I'd take it.

I need the backbox metal real door for a Williams Shangri La. Is probably the same as any late 60s thru 70s multiplayer Williams. I can make one out of wood but would rather have the correct one. Thanks!
