Anyone have a mid 60's Bally apron like the one shown in the photo?

Mine had been painted... badly.. and the paint isn't coming off without taking the original paint with it.

Quoted from Fytr:

I'm looking for a rear cover for a mid-70's Gottlieb wedge head lightbox (Abra Ca Dabra). Are these generally available anywhere?
Localish would be preferred due to shipping costs. I will be at the YegPin show in Edmonton in early May as well.


#3214 2 years ago

Anyone have a Williams knocker and bell assembly (both are on same plug) for a late 60's or early 70's pin?
Started to evaluate a machine I picked up this week and it looks like it was raped for parts. Can't blame the seller as I think he was unaware of the missing parts, still tempted to drive back and drop it off at his doorstep. I'm just a touch bent.
Several other smaller pieces missing as well. God knows what I'll find missing next

Added over 3 years ago: All set on bell and pop bumper parts! Still need a knocker and 4 pin jones plug.

Quoted from Otaku:

Always looking for ORIGINAL Gottlieb 1967-1975 coin entry plates (with original stickers) in perfect/very nice condition, not interest in rougher or faded ones at all. Looking for nice unfaded examples. NOS (in nice shape) works too, repro does not. Thanks! This is more of a constant ad than a "I need this for one game" type of ad.
2 nickels 1 play (Brown)
10c 1 play (Red)
25c 2 plays (Blue)
25c 3 plays (Blue)
Not as interested in but may still consider for cheap:
25c 1 play (Blue)
Special rarer 25c entry sticker (Red background, black text)
Black on white stickers

I may have some NOS stickers, I'll look today.

#3306 2 years ago

Looking for the following:

Williams rear door, 1964 reverse wedge head.

Williams Olympic Hockey back glass

Williams Ding Dong back glass

CC Hi-Flyer drop target

I have backglass for Ding Dong and Olympic Hockey but both are tough, in particular the Hockey.


#3320 2 years ago

I have a '73 Gottlieb Pro-Football I'm going to be parting out if you are looking for parts, the wedge head unit is actually very nice with one or two chips out if it.

#3324 2 years ago
Quoted from ejacques:

How complete is the game?

Game is gone, traded for an Orbit.

#3325 2 years ago

Looking for the following:

Williams rear door, 1964 reverse wedge head.

Williams Olympic Hockey back glass

Williams Ding Dong back glass

CC Hi-Flyer drop target

Lock bar, Gottlieb 22" 1971-1976

#3392 2 years ago

Need the following part for Gottlieb Domino or Playmates, even if cracked or broken I'm interested as it is better than nothing.

also looking for:

Williams Olympic Hockey back glass

Williams Ding Dong back glass

Chicago Coin Hi-Flyer drop target

#3394 2 years ago
Quoted from SadSack:

I have it, but the playfield is complete otherwise so I'm not really wanting to strip the part. Do you want a whole playfield? http://pinballmd.com/1968-gottlieb-domino-wedgehead-pinball-playfield-detailed-photos/

No, my playfield is pretty immaculate aside from one tiny spot and the plastics will be available through Pinball Rescue shortly if I'm inclined to wait another month.

I really don't wish to purchase a whole set for one piece.

Quoted from monsonb:

I'm looking for a score reel coil stop for a Williams Zig Zag (1964). I'll buy an entire score reel if that's the only way I can get a decent coil stop. Thanks.



#3536 2 years ago
Quoted from monsonb:

Good idea! I checked PBR and eBay, but I forgot about checking Marco. I'm curious, do you think the Marco online catalog flipped their image? This picture shows the exact opposite of what I need.

You would have to touch base with them.

FYI you could always simply grind out the current coil stop and bolt in this Gottlieb unit for $4

Quoted from spinal:

Where is the best place to order a new set of EM drop targets in general? (to start with for Sky Jump). Thanks.

Quoted from hwyhed:

I’m still looking for a back glass for a Gottlieb Royal Guard..doesn’t have to be mint..can’t find anyone that makes/reproduces them either..

Quoted from hwyhed:

Shout out to gdonovan..a big thanks again for straight up communication, sealing the back glass, and even sending back a few bucks on the quote for shipping. You’re honesty is appreciated...this bg is so much better then my existing 1...

Thank you for the kind words, the new glass should touch up well too if you are so inclined. The nice thing about being sealed is you can always wipe it off if you don't like how it came out while still wet of course.

I'll take a few weeks to do glass touchup, need to be in the mood and it takes some patience.

#3723 2 years ago
Quoted from Grayman_EM:

Looks great, I always wondered about touchup on the backglass.

There is an article over on Clay's site which is why I started dabbling (pun intended)

It takes a lot of patience. Color matching can be a PITA. Experimenting with different light bulbs helps too.

Results of Grand Tour below.

Quoted from 4Max:

Excellent, thanks, gents. I’ll PM Boilerman and if no joy I’ll drop you a line, Ph52. Happy New Year!

I have ten used from Night Rider which I think is the same if you have an issue or anyone needs one.

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.

Quoted from pinhead52:

I need a set of siderails to a 1964 Bally Grand Tour
These are distinguished by a little notch where it wraps around the head collar and at the flipper button area they have a curved concave lip. Restoring a game for a buddy and his is really pitted. Also need the metal pf glass glides use on this game.

I have a Magic Circle cabinet with the rails still, same perhaps? Looks like it but you might have a better eye for what you are looking for.

#5129 7 months ago
Quoted from Ballypin:

PM sent. Looking for the trim pieces that the top of the PF glass slides into.

Sorry it was missing. I'm hoping for some free time in the next week to get the cabinet down and get the rails off for the other pinsider.

By any chance someone have a Bally Star Trek backglass in decent shape?

Quoted from pinhead52:

Adding to that I need a Capt Card backglass (Star Trek not EM tisck tisck)

Haaaaaa! I realized that this morning when I woke up.

Quoted from DCRand:

Found this plate broken in the match unit on Space Mission. Anyone have or know where I can get a replacement?[quoted image][quoted image]

Mine broke the same way, welded it up with my mig. Just a quick spot or two will do the trick. Remove the plastic pawl before welding of course.

Does anybody have any Bally 70's kickers? Marco is out of stock[quoted image]

I just purchased the last two "heads" from PBR last month. Someone did mention there was a metal arm assembly that can be substituted.

Quoted from robertmee:

I just took a kicker off an SI....looks similar, but dont have it in front of me. Are they the same? Also have a bally Night rider SS . Dont know if they kept the same kicker.

I can confirm Night Rider EM and Star Trek are the same

I have an older Bally credit reel, close enough to adapt perhaps? I think they used a common frame. Take a picture when I get home if you like.
