Ok, need a complete head to a GTB King of diamonds...well at least the guts, can find a empty head and glass. Anybody? Got the base but no head.

#324 5 years ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

This is going to be tough to find I think.
I have a 2 chute coin entrance housing for 1977 Big Hit. It is missing the piece of metal that sits behind it and has 3 screw holes. It secures the coin entrance plates. Need the 3 screws as well. Don't even know the part number as doesn't seem to be in catalog - everything else seems to be!
See photo - the metal piece with 3 screws in it.

Looking for seven screws and maybe the cup washers to hold the playfield down, as fitted on Gottlieb games 1962 and earlier. These are for a Cover Girl. Nice condition if possible.

Home depot carries the rings. and you can get the screws from these guys. #6 or 8?

Quoted from dasvis:

Why are they so tough to come up with ? it's not like it's a wear item....

Nobody has reproduced. I spent $40 on a ebay auction for one (rounded). The only stock is killed off machines.

#537 4 years ago
Quoted from 4Max:

Has anyone got a coin chute similar to this one (comes in two parts) thats in fairly decent condition?

It's for a Kings and Queens I have just started to restore, and currently one of the coin slots simply has a piece of tin foil stuffed behind, I figured a chute would look better (even though there is no coin mechanism behind).
Any help appreciated!
Danny

Get a single chute plate from PBR...

#539 4 years ago
Quoted from 4Max:

Hmm, so its probably back to the tin, or buy a single entry plate from PBR. Trouble is they are $46. Saying that I am having trouble getting a decent finish on the original (just posted photo here https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/advice-on-buffer-wheels-and-polishing-in-general#post-2138648), so maybe thats the way to go.

Yep, they used to be ~$30 from pbr but prices have gone up. I'd sell you a chute but I'd want $45 for it .

Between new door, coin plate, legs, shooter plate, hold coil, not hard to drop $200 plus to bring a game back.

The other option is to paint the door, coin plate and legs. My Buckaroo has this (done by Bordens in PA) and it looks nice.

#545 4 years ago

I need a 2 10 sided plastic reels for a Target Pool I just picked up. The previous owner went to town and cleaned them good. I had two in my spare parts bin, need two more. There are some on ebay but I dont need the whole assy., just the plastic reel.

Thanks

Quoted from John_I:

I need a Match Unit for Gottlieb Flip a Card. This is the unit in the backbox and not the one under the playfield. It has two connectors with 2x7 pins on each. It is technically called the "0-9 Unit" for this game. Any help would be great!
Edit: I have lots of parts to trade, give away or sell including other match units. Just parted a Jack in the Box, Target Alpha and Quick Draw which were all in a fire. The internal metal parts are mostly good. Have sold and/or given a lot away already.

Ive got 4 of these, let me see if any are 2x14 jones

Ooops, just checked, all I have are 2 by 12 pin AS relays...

#596 4 years ago
Quoted from hoov:

Has anyone sourced the small nails used for the curved stainless steel side rail ball guides on '60's GTB's?

I have the small nails used, at some point they switched over to the short spiral nails. was looking for a couple of those.

#597 4 years ago

Hey I could use a chrome U channel that sits at the top of the pf opening and holds the stainless L guide in place. I need the mid 60's style that takes the rubber stops for the pf. Need it for a NorthStar.

Thanks

Need a Target Pool backglass. Yes Ron webb has them and will most likely buy from him unless...

And need a CardWiz glass (bgrestro)

#614 4 years ago
Quoted from ccotenj:

i've got a target pool bg, but it's not great... i bought the repro from ron, it is up to his usual standards...
my name is chris, and i am a bg whore... it's sick, but i'll spend more money on a bg than the rest of the machine is worth...

Would you sell it? Thats my problem, spent $200 on the machine and now Im going to sink 300 for a bg? The pf is really nice though. Post a pic of your used bg. Otherwise Ron will get the biz once he's open again.

Gawd, temped to replace the pf targets (the generic ones) 15 times $4, $60 for targets, but I'd get Boilerman busy

#618 4 years ago
Quoted from ccotenj:

sure... just replacing the posts and pop bumper cap spruced it up quite a bit, and new targets would really be nice...

You are not going to find the pool ball targets except for the solids...One of my striped has the paint worn off of it. Will at some point demount, spray paint a stripe on it and remount.

Will get 8 or 15 of these for the other targets

I need a drop target plastic to SkyJump...

#672 4 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

if you need the plastic above the drop targets that is the one almost always broken. you might have a hard time finding it. might have to buy the whole set to get it.

Yea at $115 from rescue debating whether game is worth it...

#679 4 years ago
Quoted from jrpinball:

Those are tough to find. PBR did repros, but they're not quite like the original. One thing about those guides that's not widely known; the diagonal cut on the longer green and yellow lane guides that exposes the upper post is supposed to be there. That's because the ball can hit an adjacent pop bumper, and instead of striking the plastic lane guide, the intended design was to have the ball strike the exposed post and it's rubber ring. So, if you replace those guides with PBRs repros, always cut a diagonal piece out toward the pop bumper so that the ball will strike the rubber ring on the post.

The mod to the lane guide, do we use a rubber between the posts under this or still just the smaller post rubber?

Need a 1 1/2 green lane divider double or single sided for a central Park. The new ones from PBR is missing the ridges, dont match the yellow, a real bummer.
Ken

#778 4 years ago
Quoted from 4Max:

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for rollover guides: one double sided 1 1/4 (hole to hole) and one 2 1/8 single sided (or double, I can cut down). They are the ones with the raised line on top.
IMG_1860.JPG
I know I can get bright white new ones from PBR, but does anyone have nice yellowed ones that are around 40 years old - the bright white would look out of place on the 72 Grand Slam I'm working on.
Thanks,
Dan

Here's my tricked out GS. red and green lane dividers rather than white.

Thanks for all the ideas on the bell. After TPF I will take it off and have it sand blasted or replated. Whatever it takes to make it look brand spanking new.

Its platted, good luck

#782 4 years ago
Quoted from Drano:

Has anyone ever seen a coil like this?
I'm still trying to hunt down a replacement for the slot kicker mech in my 1938 Bally Booster.
I got this picture from someone who had one on eBay, but no other info.
The coil looks very long and there is an arm that come up through the playfield and is attached to the end of the plunger. It fires the ball up the playfield when acivated. I suppose, since this as AC power, the extra stroke length of the coil and plunger was compensating for the lower power output?
Anyway, if anybody knows where I can get somehting like this, please let me know.
Thanks!

Quoted from Yarrenrut:

I'm looking for the small inserts on sure shot does anyone have these inserts
Thanks

I have blank inserts...

#982 4 years ago
Quoted from CactusJack:

Steve was making the "Peg" style by cutting down the shark fin style that came from the Premier inventory and was welding in a bar to accommodate the screw pegs. As Retro Pinball, we purchased 100 lock bars from him but I was told we sent 50 of them back as we ended up not using them.
I am not sure why he hasn't geared up to keep converting them due to the demand for them. I would expect if he does, he will charge a bit more than he used to.
Those $125+ Peg bars are why I keep bringing up my Shark Fin conversion. It may not be something you want to do to your prized keeper, but it is certainly a great option for saving a decent player's condition game that may not justify the higher expense.

Pretty crazy, $157 so far

ebay.com link

#987 4 years ago
Quoted from MrArt2u:

$200! Well, now we're getting silly.

I sent Steve at PBR a note with the $200 lockdown bar "see what happens when you run out of stuff..."

he writes:

yup....you should be grateful that I have some principles and price items based on what they cost to make instead of what I could charge for them!

I view it important that I be a stabilizing force in this hobby and try to behave as such. Thanks for your support!

I looked more closely and someone had done #2, above, on the reels with the broken tabs. So I've put clips back in and they're working fine like that. Thanks! I never would have noticed those tiny holes otherwise.

If you are ambitious I have a surplus of reel guides with the clip. You need to drill out the rivets on the old and mount the replacements with #2 hardware (which I has as well). A lot of work but it brings it back to original (almost)

Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Kind of blows me away that someone has not even reproduced at least the various Gottlieb Score Reels by now. There are some folks that need them for replacement because they cracked/broke, or the numbers are shot, but I think what is missed is that there are a whole lot of other folks who want new ones because theirs is yellowed and dingy after 40+ years. I would buy new sets to replace my dingy yellow Gottlieb ones in a heartbeat if they were available at a fair price.
Just my 2 cents yet once again.

Hey guys, can someone point me to solutions for a broken GTB score reel plastic bracket (Ice Revue era) that the score reel mechanism slides in to (and then gets clipped to)?
I know Steve Young doesn't have any and the search function here isn't helping me today. I have some ideas but I figure enough of you guys have fixed them in the past that there is likely an easier way.

No real easy way, I have guides scavenged from parts games and the #2 hardware to remount it with. PM me and I can fix you up.

Quoted from fflint_18:

I definitely need the wiper. Mine is snapped in half.
Not sure if the disc is damaged.
I'd even be willing to take the whole thing since who knows what caused it to get snapped.
Thanks Delta.
Let me know.

Let the light board down without moving the wiper ?

#1270 4 years ago
Quoted from fflint_18:

I picked the game up from a moron that bought it and an OXO in a group thinking he could fix them.
Then they sat in his garage for 6 months.
Wouldn't surprise me one bit.
The OXO looks overall like it can be easily brought back to life. PF is decent, but the cabinet is all flaked and there is almost nothing left of the BG.

My parts catalog shows a player wiper part no of B-12566. You could check with PBR. They have helped me in the past.

(The ebay stuff wasnt the right pieces)

#1275 4 years ago
Quoted from goldenboy232:

Does anyone have an extra Leg-Tee (the metal piece that sits inside the cabinet, through which the leg-bolts attach) that would fit a 1965 Bank-A-Ball? Its to slightly rounded (sort of oval-shaped) corners/ends, unlike the squared off ones that fit later Gottliebs.
I looked on PBR but only see the later ones.
Thanks!

Later ones work just fine... If you must have a rounded one PM me and I'll scrounge one out of a junk cab I have

A spot of silver solder can repair that (silver solder, not regular). Leckmeck has experimented with copper tape for the same issue (I think it worked). I know the silver solder will hold up fine.

I e-mailed PBR today and Steve said they already have the correct caps in stock. That was quick! They have the hot-stamp press up and running at there location now so it must not take long to make a batch.
Here's some pics of the original Gottlieb hot stamp presses that were located at the factory until Don Murphy moved them from the Gottlieb factory in Chicago to Henry, Illinois. After Don's passing, the presses were moved to PBR. I was fortunate enough to take these pics before Don's passing.

Thanks for sharing. Kind of cool to see how these are done. Looks like they do drop targets with the same eq.

Quoted from Pinball_Nate:

How hard is it to find the "coin accept" plates for early Gottliebs? this would be the narrow metal piece with two extended slots that the coins go into??? Forgot to look at York - found a cabinet and legs, bolts, but need this part.

What year gottlieb? For 60's I have a bunch of coin plates. PBR stocks 60s-70s stuff.

Quoted from jdoz2:

How hard is it to find the metal posts like on kings and queens? I checked with Mayfair and he doesn't have any.

Pretty tough unless you know the right people I just happened to strip a Central Park pf... make me an offer

#1525 4 years ago
Quoted from jdoz2:

Just trying to decide if I want to pick one up that's missing around 15 of them. Just trying to decide if I want to mess with it

They go for about $2-3 ea. PBR had a small stock at one point and they sold for $3 each.

#1545 3 years ago
Quoted from Toyguy:

Anyone got a 1" smooth opaque red Gottlieb playfield post? My newly acquired Flying Chariots is missing just that one and it appears that PBR does not have the opaque red smooth ones.
Thanks in advance!

Another plea for a head to a King of Diamonds.....or at least a KoD bank and I'll build one.

In the same light I need a red daisy domed 100 points when lit for a flipper cowboy. No PBR does not have that one.

I'm looking for a Royal Flush (1976) backglass - mine's really flaky, and a backglass for a Domino (1968). My Domino backglass is all there, but the colors are really faded. I see that Ron Web has a repo on sale, but an original would be cool. Thanks.

Every RF Ive seen has been flacky. Shay has the Royal flush

#1595 3 years ago

Anybody have two targets to a GTB roto target wheel? Buckaroo style. PBR I believe has the target stem but I dont think they have the whole target head face etc. A buddy just picked up a Buckaroo with two missing targets...

You may be in luck My parts manual calls out a wiper of B-12568 for Duotron, same as Surfer. And i just found one in my parts bin that matches my Surfer

I have ended up with a Stern EM lockdown bar. Usual 22 inches long but 2.5 inches wide/deep. Button style. Pictured with a standard Gottlieb bar of the mid 70's. Since I am Gottlieb only I am in no need.

Will sell cheap, $10 over shipping

#1625 3 years ago
Quoted from Toyguy:

Looking for info mostly this time around. Does anyone know of a source for those round-head, slotted screws with the built-in washers that are used for Gottlieb posts and plastics, at least in the early 60s? My Flying Chariots has definitely seen some moisture in its life and nearly all the playfield screws are rusty and I'd like to replace them. I'd prefer original style slotted heads but I could live with Phillips if I have to.
Same question for pop bumper cap screws. I can find slotted head screws but the modern ones have heads that are too small. The originals are rather fat headed for their size. Any good sources for those? Failing that, anyone got 4 they could spare?
Dave

The built-in washer screws are hard to find, availble from parted out machines... PBR does sell screws for the pop caps but I may be able to send you some. I also buy from these guys

Looking for a Gottlieb score reel switch stack # B-9576. This is for my 1973 High Hand 100's reel, someone in the past had bent it up badly & I am having problems keeping it in adjustment. Anyone have a spare?

FOUND - Oddly, PBR did not have any. Marcos did. Marcos is not always the cheapest, but wow, what a nice web site.

There is always score reels that come up on ebay, good to have a couple on hand. I would have sent you 1 for the $5 shipping fee.

Never mind, I have a bottom board to a KoD I can steal from

#1835 3 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

i guess you gave up trying to find A head for that kod and retired it to the parts pile?

The bottom cab came in 6 pieces, 4 loose sides, the bottom board with the slats attached and the bottom. pf is totally trashed, would need a Herb Silvers overlay... So yea its on the shelf. i wont strip the bottom board for another year before declaring a total writeoff. It does have three half moon coin chutes . Also need a tilt bob and wire for NS, will borrow that off of the KoD carcass.

SB relay installed and working. Had to detach door harness, have a jammed door to figure out but the game starts up and plays.

I must say I did a nice job on the webbing

#1843 3 years ago
Quoted from RyanClaytor:

Thanks for uploading that pic!

What's the secret technique?

If we tell YOU you must promise never to tell anyone else

My technique is to spray the Krylon can stuff into a HF touchup sprayer and the cut it 50% with lac thinner, a little trial and error is needed. You can get it pretty fine. And maybe 60 lbs on the compressor.
