  • 2001 Gottlieb, 1971
#1 6 years ago

Just picked up a Gottlieb 2001 Saturday.
A few of the numbers are bad on the score reels, so I foolishly thought, "Hey, these are on every single EM pinball in the world, they must be available everywhere."
Well to my surprise after going to the end of the internet and back, these things just do not seem to exist. What the hell?
Anyone have a surprise link I missed somewhere?
You would think there would be at the minimum, stickers to go on the old reels.

Did you try Steve at Pinball Resource. He is the GTB King. If he doesn't, I have a few used score reels.

I tried Steve's web page and could not find anything.
Thanks for the offer. Mine are not in horrible shape, and I can live with them. Just thought shiny new ones would be nice.

Phone Steve and ask, I have trouble finding things on the website as well.

You have to call him. He has tons of items that aren't list on the website.

They are in short supply because people don't fix them and just replace them.

You should fix your bad numbers with a sharpie or acrylic paint. Take your time and use masking tape if required. They will look fine.

Yes. I used to deal with Steve back in the old days.
Even then, I made sure I had every part number handy ahead of time. I always felt like I was dealing with the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld.

Yes, on my website is a file for the Gottlieb score reels.

I know it says Williams, but the font is the same.
I made the split of the numbers between 5 and 6 insted of 9 and 0.
Just to keep them out of sight when everything is reset to 0.
