Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Could use a 70's Gottlieb Coin Door bracket which is located on the inside of the door. May have been used on 60's models as well single or Multiplayer, so fairly common. I believe it keeps the Lock Down Bar Latch Handle secure when the Coin Door is closed. One of my machines was missing this when I bought it.
Update: 3/6/2015 - Got one coming from a Pinsider, Thanks Again John_in_NC.

I wondered the function of that bracket Ken-thks for clarifying.

#802 5 years ago

I am wanting to obtain the coin lockout mechanism for a Gottlieb 70s EM pls. This includes x2 mounting brackets (A11637), armature (A11639), the coil holding bracket which is shown but not listed in 76/78 parts catalogues, spring A557 and if possible hairpins & retaining rings. Happy to pay reasonable price along with shipping to zip 97220. Thks.

#804 5 years ago

Thks Ken. I am placing an order with PBR for a 'bag of items' but thought these may not be in stock. Price Ken its only money!!!

#807 5 years ago
Quoted from EM-PINMAN:

Pinball Resource should have those items as I bought them myself a couple of years ago, although it may be a bit pricey to ship them down under, but at least you have that option.
Ken

That was good advice Ken. Jimmy PBR got back to me very quickly & confirmed PBR has the items and I have placed an order for those and many other parts. Jimmy also confirmed that part GTB A557 which is referred to in the GTB 1978 catalogue as a 'spring' is actually an "interlock relay housing with arm + spring" which is the specific part I also required.

Quoted from jjpm:

Do these work? They're 60s chutes, so they don't have the end part that sticks out, but if you are good at fabricating, all it would take is a little bending to add the part that fits through the coin chute. If so, drop me a PM with an offer.
IMG_2693.JPG (Click image to enlarge)

These will not work per original as the original has a protruding section through the coin entrance plate to guide the coin. Edit-sorry just realised this is what you stated.

Quoted from Odessa:

I'm after the little metal piece that spans the top of the shooter lane where the wood strip finishes. It screws into the wood on each side of the lane, I'm sure someone will give it a name...it's for a Gottlieb High Hand but it's a pretty universal part I'm thinking.

It is a GTB A8215A metal runway shield available from PBR at $4.80. If you want to send me a stamped addressed envelope I can probably send you one I replaced.

Quoted from feveredpinhead:

Looks good. Thanks again for letting me know about these. Ordered mine from Chris Tuesday afternoon and received it today (Thursday). Mine's not quite as clean as the one pictures and doesn't have a key for the lock but considering mine was completely missing on my 1961 United Playboy Shuffle-Targette machine I'm happy with it. I owe you one Wayner.

Ah Tuesday to Thursday for delivery makes me envious. Mine has not reached my US shipping address at Portland OR yet then it will be another week before it arrives downunder but I am super happy to be able to purchase assembly.

Quoted from waltrr:

I know you said original, but here is an option if you have or can make the metal ring and can't find an original.
http://www.pinballrescue.net/Animation%20Plastics.html

Thks but I already have that option & the metal ring is not an easy component to fabricate.

#3771 2 years ago
Quoted from waltrr:

If you can find an original great, but the ring is very easy to make. Find someone in your area with a laser cutter. Cut from 16ga.or 18ga. #7 stainless and make sure they cut with nitrogen. Nitrogen will leave no burn marks. They can burn the rivet holes in for you too.
Once the program is made, you can always cut a handful, sell them for a few bucks each to make some of your money back.
After looking at yours, I wish I didn't sell my Worlds Fair now.

Thks good info. Yes machine is one of my favourite EMs. I really like the artwork & gameplay.

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

Quoted from Fifty:

Hi everyone, I've been putting up with a problem on my reset bank where no matter how tight I do up the butterfly the reset bank slowly drops on me. Someone in the past broke/cut the metal where the pin slots in and well, there you have it.
So I know this is a long shot, but does anyone have the right side bracket for a reset bank available? It's for the underside of a Surfer, but I'm sure there are many other games that use the same part. I can measure it up for size if there are any possible leads out there.
Thanks in advance!
[quoted image]
[quoted image]

I am sure toomanypins on Pinside/pinjunk on ebay would have that part.

#5522 8 months ago
Quoted from Fifty:

Really? Cool. I'll try looking up the part number now that I know what it is.

Thank you! I couldn't find the part number anywhere. PBR is out of stock.

Sure. It's the tip that has broken off. I don't have a comparison photo, but I mocked-up the photo to show how it should look. I based it off the left side bracket.
[quoted image]

Yes. I believe this is what happened. Here is a picture of the one from PBR website. I thought more of the tip was gone but it looks like it's only a tiny section. Perhaps this isn't why the bank is slipping out of the bracket? On second look though... It looks like mine is rounded out quite a bit. The brass one is definitely tighter. BTW,
[quoted image]

There appears to be enough normal position metal there to enable the locking of the assembly-from that pic providing the section is appropriately tightened I would doubt that is the problem. Also the nyloc nuts which enable oscillation of the assembly can also be tightened to reduce any movement.

Conscious this is a long shot but I am currently restoring a Bally 1938 Lite-A-Pax.

The rubber cup (1in dia) within the damper which controls the cig pack light flickering is badly worn making operation of the damper problematic. I have tried a near equivalent size car wheel cylinder cup but it seem slightly oversized and binds within the damper.

No success in procuring a replacement damper cup and seemingly part is unavailable for this 1938 machine. But I had a closer look at the existing damper cup and from close observation of the underside it is leather not rubber (not easy to discern without close examination).

I did a Google search on leather forming, broke out a leather piece on hand and a couple pieces of pipe reflecting the intended internal and external dimensions needed.

canon29102019 004 (resized).JPG

I soaked the leather in cold water for around 20 mins and when the bubbles stopped appearing removed it from the water and placed over the smaller pipe and forced the larger pipe over the top to create a mould. It was left overnight to form and dry out the leather.

canon29102019 001 (resized).JPG

Removed the outer pipe next morning to reveal the formed cup.

canon29102019 002 (resized).JPG

The formed cup was trimmed and installed to damper arm.

canon29102019 003 (resized).JPG

Very pleased to say the cup works fine and gives good adjustment from no vacuum to full vacuum preventing any arm movement. Re-installed in machine and fine tuned adjustment to enable the wiper to appropriately wave over the rivets which control the flickering of lights behind the cigarette packets.

I am currently restoring an Aladdins Castle and in similar position. I even purchased the 1976 parts catalogue thinking 'surely its in there' but of course not so. The game manual does disclose a number of specific tech variations on machine so it seems that has to suffice.
