Hello everyone, I just recently picked up a really nice Operation Thunder. When I got the game home and was going over the game I noticed that it is missing a part. I called Steve Young at Pinball Resource and he didn't have a part number for me on it. If you look at the attached picture you'll see a ball in the hole. Past that hole there should be a ball stopper (chrome I'm thinking) but I would love to see some pictures from someone that has the game to confirm what's there. And if anyone has the Gottlieb part number that would be really helpful.

Hey guys, forgot to also mention the schmatics are missing from the manual I have and I'm wondering if someone could tell me what Q# the Mosfet that controls that upper kicker right in the middle of the playfield? That would be a big help. I will be buying an Not manual that will come with schmatics from Pbr but I would like to try and fix the game before it arrives.

Nevermind lol broken wire on coil. Soldered back on and is now playing 100%! Just need to get that part number.

You aren't missing a ball stop. What you have is exactly as it was designed.

Thank you very much. It's kind of weird how they put the holes in there to mount one. I appreciate the help

from the looks of your picture that's a VUK or a saucer that kicks the ball out.... makes sense it now works as you fixed a bad wire to coil connection

Here's a couple more pics for your reference but I think you're all good.

Yes I see I'm not the only one without one. However I looked on ipdb and Operation Thunder on there shows a ball stopper in the pictures. Might have been added on after the fact.
