Looking for a Gottlieb Rack A Ball Backglass and a Tournament Backglass

Doesn't have to be new or if you can reproduce with another material

#4502 1 year ago
Quoted from DNO:

I have a Bally Bow and Arrow, one of the wiper/spider blades has broken off at the base.
Anyone know where to order, or have one to sell?
It goes to the "flash motor", I think. (bottom, center, back of the cabinet relay board)
Any help appreciated

I think finding a spare Bow and Arrow Flasher Unit wiper will take some time. There may be some options though.

According to the parts catalog (http://www.planetarypinball.com/reference/partsmanuals/BLY_Parts_1976/index.html#/110/) all of the Bally Flasher units used the same wiper so a wiper from any Flasher unit from Sky Rocket, 4 Million BC, Fireball, Space Time, Time Zone or Bow and Arrow should work.

Even that may be hard to find though so another approach may be necessary. The Flasher unit wiper comes apart to reveal 5 individual wipers stacked up on the hub. (Picture a lollipop with a hole in the middle - that's what one wiper looks like.) And the Flasher contact board has contacts in just the outer of three available rings of holes in the board. I can't prove it but I bet that other (maybe all?) Bally steppers have the same three rings of holes and the same kinds of stackable wipers. If you can find a Bally stepper that uses the outer ring of contacts you might be able to use one of the longest wiper blades from that stepper.

Beware that the wiper assembly has a hub with a notch in it and all of the individual wipers are keyed so they don't slide around the hub. If you find a few replacement wipers of the right length you might get lucky and one of them will be keyed correctly. But even if none of them are, modifying a wiper so it keys into the correct position shouldn't be too hard.

PM me if I need to explain this better.

Dang! Mounting the hardware on my rechromed coin plate to a Williams Heatwave I broke off a stud that mounts the little plate. Anybody got a spare stud they could send me?

Still looking for the unobtainium: OXO bumper caps. One blue, One green.

I have a pair of the 10 or 100 when lit. They are green, not blue and came from a Pat Hand machine.

Quoted from DNO:

Yes, like Mark said, those wiper blades are replaceable..
I made an entire wiper from (I believe Bally parts) for a Midway Champ..
If you'd like, you can send your wiper to me and I'll match it up with the wiper
from the Bow & Arrow that I have set up, and I'll replace the broken blade. If I don't
have a wiper blade around (but I'm pretty sure that I do), I can modify one..

Quoted from Isochronic_Frost:

I’m getting the metal backbox panel custom fabricated for a Williams 4-player as well as a Gottlieb wedgehead, is there any interest among anyone else for one as well? I can get a run made if so. If this post has positive feedback I’ll make a proper thread for it

Looking for a mid 70's Bally 2 Player back metal panel for a Hokus Pokus. No one repro's them yet.

Ken - the simplest thing to do for this would be to take a screw of the same thread size and just grind the head down so it looks like the button head of the original. Then polish the head of all of them.

#4508 1 year ago

People asking about backdoors. This is the guy I got my WMS from on EBAY -- he sells GTB 1 and 2 player and Bally as well. Scroll down these listings to see them all
ebay.com link

shipping is a rape but the door I got was perfect and worth it to complete a restore and replace the custom-cut piece of cardboard that was back there!

#4509 1 year ago

I need... the right slingshot plastic to a Bank-a-ball/Flipper Pool, mine is broke.

thanks

I need a Genco back door for a 1940 machine, along with a ball lift rod (and connector parts?), and a lockdown bar. Genco 'Big Chief', but other games of the era should fit. Also, still looking for a Bally 'Little Joe' backglass.

I will pay up to $100 for a Bally APRON. The style is depicted in the attached photo.

It is for my 1969 Bally Cosmos; however, this green apron was utilized on other Bally titles as well. My want-ad is below. Many thanks.

I've often wondered if any neighbors ever overheard our conversations when picking up games, many times late at night. "I've got the legs. Put the head in the back seat and then we'll put the body in the back and cover it with a blanket".

#4518 1 year ago

And what famous monster would come to mind if you overheard “Go ahead and unscrew those head bolts!”

Hahaha so great because its so true!

Then you start talking about taking the balls out before you leave and people really think you’re sick.

John has send me a message.....

"I know that I have scanned the instructions cards for this game, but I have looked on all my cd's of scanned instruction cards, but I must of never saved it after scanning.
I even went through the box of old instruction that I save after scanning, but this game for some reason everything is missing.
If I ever find them I will email the file to you."

So, we must keep hope to ever find them again...

Maybe so. The replacement 1" I have are not quite the right color and my current ones measure at 15/16".

I am looking for a ball lift rod, housing, spring and washers for a 1960 and newer Williams. Up to about 1966 when they stopped using them. Late 50s will also work, but not the earlier all in one skinny rod version.

I don't need the lever mech that lifts the ball as that is intact. Just the rod assembly and housing.

Thank you.

#4544 1 year ago

I'm looking for the post that holds two rubbers and the square rubber that goes on the gates that lets the balls drain. See pic. It's for a United 1947 Mexico.

Happy Thanksgiving to all Pinsiders.

Looking for a complete knocker assembly - someone completely removed the one from my 1967 Williams Touchdown. I assuming any EM knocker will work, and so just looking for something cheap, not bothered about condition (as long as the coil is ok). Yep, I could get one from PBR or Ebay for $35, but I was hoping get a bargain from someone (yes, I'm being cheap!).

Thanks
