Blackout Metal post.png

Hello everybody! My WMS Blackout is missing of one metal post for the spinner wire protection. I must replace the existing horrible screw with the correct one. Have you any idea of which metal post I need? Which Inch dimension?

Thanks in advance!

Is not for Stern only as described?
I usually do shopping at Best Of Pinball in Germany, 'cause is near to me. Here I can find the "metal post" and the "mini metal post"... what is the difference? Ok, mini for me means more little than others...
However I have the post for the upper right spinner like reference... is tall approx 25 mm... but which is the correct one? Have you any sort of Williams code number?
Thanks

As far as I know they are the same as the Williams/Bally ones. I used a few of those in my ES where the posts were busted out. For height I have no idea really. I would assume one would want a taller post there to protect the spinner arm?

Depends, Williams used 3 different style of posts.
since it has a pointed tip, it could be one of 2.
if it's a machine screw style (round base), it's a 02-4003,
if it a wood screw style (hex shaped base) its a 02-3905.

02-3905: (mentioned above: same as 530-5004-00)

All clear after your explanation! And thanks for the link to the Williams manual... I did't know! Even if I was aware that PlanetaryPinball has the WMS license.
No doubt... it's the second one! The wood screw style! Thanks guys!!!
