Forgive my apparent ignorance but is there any relationship between the 'chicken' & the remainder of the artwork?

Are there two birds on the backglass?

Looking for 2 score reel stepper units for a 1964 Chicago Coin "Royal Flash".
Mine has broken nylon actuator arm in two of them. "1" Point and "10" point stepper units needed.

Thanks!

Is this the right score reel?

I see what you did there.

#3808 11 days ago

Mark,

Yes, I believe the diagram you provided is the correct part. The game is from 1964, and the catalogue picture you show is 1969, but the two nylon parts look to be correct. Can't tell which one of mine is broken, but it's definitely one of those that are being shown in the pic.

Thanks, and do you have one or two of these for sale?

Sorry, no. I thought it might help those who have unidentified score reels in their stashes.

And based on the Animation, the Chicken is dancing just like everyone else in the photo (the chicken's legs move too).

Okay, what is it you could use, the plunger and the nylon that's attached
to it? Those are 5" Score Reels, right?
I have a complete C.C. Bowler head that I'd rather not begin dismembering
yet, plus it has yellow score reels. Perhaps I have other C.C. 5" score reel
parts, but if not, I'm almost positive the United parts that I have will interchange
perfectly fine. As far as extra Score Reels, Znet (Bruce) has many including the
ones for your machine..
Let me know if the plunger and the nylon attached is what you could use, and
maybe a pic or measurement on the piece(s). We'll get her fixed up.. (T)

Somebody is always looking for a chime unit. Of course I'll probably piss people off by publicizing it here...

#3814 10 days ago

I'm cleaning up a Bally Rocket III that I originally bought mostly for parts. However, it is too good to part out, so now I am trying to get it going. Unfortunately, a few parts have already been snipped out by the previous owner.

Most of the parts I can get from PBR, having difficulty finding the fiber actuator for Special (KK) relay. I really just need the fiber actuator but would take the whole relay if available. Here is a picture of one from my better Rocket III. The part number for the actuator is L248.

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Once you get some good scans of the original Bally Amigo chicken images you should email them over to Pinball Rescue as they will make the decals for other folks. I did that for them with a Sonic Prospector. They won't have an issue with the Bally/Williams trademark as there is no brand name or trade mark on the spinner image.

Two versions of the red here, I'm working on the blue image now. Give me about 1/2 hour.

cropped down the provided image above, adjusted perspective and color corrected

Best I can do with the blue image, its a bit low resolution for my meager photoshop skill set.

Three red chicken is with the image filled in with paint bucket tool so it is mostly solid.

#3818 9 days ago

Novaguy here's a picture of the Gottlieb 1955 Marathon score reel part I am looking for. Its the metal one with the pin and the hook for the spring. The pin slides up into the plastic part. These are from another score reel in the game. Who ever had the machine before had creatively found a nut and bolt that fit into the plastic part and then hooked the spring to the bolt and then managed to get it re-assembled. It must have been a real effort with a very poor result. I included a picture of the top of the score reel to identify the vintage

thanks WillbeEM

Looking for the three spinners of Swing Along (Gottlieb 1963), I've got the machine, but not the spinners.
Decals are also okay, I've got three others spinners with the wrong pictures

#3821 9 days ago

Looking for one white rollover button for a 1951 Gottlieb. The button measures 11/16" across. PBR buttons are too small.

Trolling ebay over the last week I was lucky enough to score some GTB roto target arms. Should anybody be desperate I will provide a few of these.

#3823 9 days ago

Those first five are either stationary targets from "Spot A Card", or if from a roto unit, then it's a sample game "King of Diamonds". Unless I'm mistaken, those are the only two games that have that style target in black on white.

If he can't help, I've got a junker 1957 Whirl Wind that still has all the score reels. I'm not sure about condition of the parts you need, but I will be glad to take them apart and see.

You would need to decal over the face to match what you need, at least you get the arm. Or re-rivet the face on to the arm...

#3829 8 days ago

Cool. If anybody needs anything out of that 1957 Gottlieb Whirl Wind, let me know. No backglass and the playfield is trashed, but most mechanical parts are there.

Looking to purchase an original spinning wheel with metal outer ring from a GTB World Fair EM. Thks.

Is your ring damaged or missing?
i have the ring ( nfs its on my game) - if you contact a laser cutter in melbourne I can work with them to get it copied for you if you like

do you want the full stack with slam switch or just a start contact? How about the harness? On the add a ball games I like to add a switch at the back of the coin bracket, lined up with the eject rod, just pushing the eject starts the game. And i should have pop bumper plunger.

You don't even need to do that. On add-a-ball games, just remove the coin mechanism and flip the anti-cheat wireform over the coin switch. Verify that the switch closes when you push the coin return. I've done this on a number of games, and it works great. It takes a couple of minutes, no added parts needed, and it's easily reversible. Of course, the game can't be coin operated with this modification.

Thks for your support Doug. My original spinner & ring is missing. In its place I have a repro spinner without ring.

canon231016 003 (resized).JPG

I have had quotes from a couple of locals to laser cut a new ring but the prices have been just too high. If at your convenience you can give me the ID, OD & thickness & clarify the material of the original ring (to assist in gaining fresh quotes) that would be very much appreciated. Thks Wayne

I actually have the missing art. It stuck to the backbox. You can have that too .. not sure you could transfer it back.

I needed that same cog for my 1956 Williams Cross Fire and Steve at PBR sold me a used Gottlieb one.

Funny, I have the same issue on mine. The art is all there, just stuck to the backbox as well.

#3846 13 hours ago

I know this is a long.... shot, but I'm helping someone on the other side of the world to get a Flipper Cowboy together. He only has the lower half missing the backbox. I happen to have an extra Flipper Cowboy head but it's missing a few parts. The bell asys were available from PBR, I have an extra score reel but the problem is the balls to play unit is missing. That I don't have and the 2, from different machines, I just bought on E-Bay have different configurations on the rivet positioning.
So, does anyone happen to have a balls to play unit from a Flipper Cowboy they might part with and sell?
Are you still laughing?
Attached is a pic of the correct unit in my machine.
Thanks!!
