I could really use the three spinners for Swing Along.
Still looking for the three spinner targets for Gottlieb Swing Along.
Bottom Arch for Bally Star-Jet.
Long shot here but looking for two parts for Star-jet. Lower apron and the back door (28.5" wide X 25.25" tall X .25" lip on bottom).
Quoted from boilerman:
would that be for the one from the blue frog auction?
Ha! No, although I did have a proxy bid on it in case it had some better parts on it (like a lower apron and back door)
I picked mine up about 1 1/2 years ago from Gene Cunningham's former collection. I took my time cleaning it up and just recently finished it. I'll post some pictures soon in one of these threads.
Still looking for the lower playfield Apron & Back Door for Bally Star-Jet. Pretty sure same as Cue-Tease, Bongo, Mad World, & 3-in-Line. Thanks.
If I can remember, I will take a look at mine on the weekend and see if I come up with any ideas for fabricating one.
I am wondering if you could take a standard coil actuator (assuming you have an extra) and attach an arm to it that the springs could be connected to? Might work until a replacement can be found.
4Max: I took my Hula girl mechanism apart to examine it. I think if you have an armature, like this one from my spare parts bin, you could attach an arm to it and get it to work. A shot of the original bracket shown as well. If you want I could take more detailed pictures or dimensions from the original.
Do you have the original coil bracket and the plate it mounts to? If so, I would just take the armature like the one I show, remove the plastic switch actuator and add a lever. I'm sure the that actuator plate will fit onto the original coil bracket. If you don't have an armature like that, I can send you one.
As far as the springs go, you might be able to take a flipper or pop bumper spring and just modify the end coils...it would be turning a compression spring into an extension spring, but the force/size feels about right.
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.
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.
