My Capcom Pinball Magic is now offline. Turns out a small part (Actuator arm) on the flipper mech seems to have sheered off.
The part number is A-00425-R-2 (but is interchangeable with the A-00425-L-2 pat). See picture.
Unfortunately, like so many Capcom parts, this one appears unavailable at Marco. I'm not even finding it in Australia which is where I've stocked up on many other hard-to-find Capcom parts and plastics for my PM.
So the first question is where can I find this specific actuator part to at least get the game up and running?
The next obvious question is where can I find the parts to do a complete rebuild?
There are no Capcom kits that I can find, so searching for individual parts (I think this is most of what a rebuild should replace):
A-00429-L/R - Plunger assemblies ... not available
PL00132-5 - 2.218 inch (2 7/32") collared coil sleeves ... not specifically available, but maybe something close in the b/w parts pin?
SG00111 - Spring Ext. 0.200 x 1.063 L ... not available
A-00378 - Coil stops ... reproductions available from Marco. Originals from PSP/AU
SW00127 - Leaf Switch ... available from PSP/AU
And if I were doing it, now after 30 years of play, I'd replace the following parts as well:
PL00264 - Bushing ... available
A-00217-Y - Flipper bat & shaft ... available from PSP/AU
Who's going to make and sell Capcom flipper rebuilt kits? The Capcom titles are just too awesome to have to retire due to no parts....
