have a 1961 gottlieb oklahoma..back legs are 31" but what size are the front (not 31")

#3 4 years ago

Gottlieb®

1956-1975

31''

Single Player Only -Painted usually to 1960
-( Legs used on Multi-Players games vary in length<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

31 inches in the back and 27 inches in the front will be the best you can do. I speak from experience from the 2 player games I own (have owned) from that era with the funky "lip" in the front. 1964 Gottlieb Big Top and 1964 Gottlieb Ship Mates is my other example.

EDIT: I just measured out the front legs on Ship Mates. They are 28 1/2 inches long. I would just order the 1960's Bally 28 1/2 inch legs if you can't find original Gottlieb ones (good luck on that)

I am starting to think my Ship Mates legs are not original. I do remember measuring the Big Top legs as 27" (again I don't think they were original though)

Well, the tale of the tape tells it. Both front and rear legs are 27" from bottom of leg (not leveler) to top most portion.

My Oklahoma is an original example with a NOS playfield, signed by Wayne Neyens, so I believe it is correct.

Nice game! I don't think I've ever played an Oklahoma. The lower playfield looks interesting, but it also looks like it would be almost impossible to get the ball back to the upper playfield. So, is it fun?

My 1964 parts catalog says D-4337 steel leg set for your machine. It doesn't give any leg length though, just a part number.

The game is fun and gets plenty of play ...has slingshots, cannons, dual roto targets.

True, that once a ball leaves the upper playfield it's hard to get it back....but it does happen on occasion. On the other hand, the ball can stay in play in that area and not quickly drop to the bottom of the playfield.

Here's a quick video that I had made last year:

I like the looks of this layout.

I saw a set of flat white 1958 GTB legs for a 4 player game on ebay a while back and they were 27 inches.

thanks joel..she is a stunner..just about finished a ground up resto on mine..waiting for a backglass resto glass to arrive..

just one more question if you don't mind, what is the length of the plunger?

#13 4 years ago

Hi,
Interesting coincidence, I was just talking to another Sydneysider, Mike Shalhoub, about my Oklahoma. It's in the Compendium, page 120. He was at the PinExpo when Wayne Neyens signed the machine.

Happy to provide whatever info I can for your restore. Including a few pix of the innards. Also have a schematic if you need help.

The plunger is a stubby. Approx. 1.5" on the inside of the cabinet. Overall, about 4.5" in length.

Shooter rod is about 9" overall.
