My flipper plungers are really wore out,I flipped them over and they work better but I want to replace them,there is a set on ebay with links but he doesn't say if they are for the older units or new,and I don't know if there is a difference!
Are all the William's plungers the same? Is there an early late difference?
My machine is a 75 Little chief. Thanks.

First, you should always post EM questions in the EM forum for quicker and better responses.

Just order new ones from PBR. The Pinball Resource. You may want to get a full flipper rebuild kit instead.

Definitely do a full rebuild if it hasn't been done before.

Parts for this era are good until 1979, after that they changed everything

Thanks Guys,I have had this machine for over 30 years but never did anything to it,it's been in storage for over 20 years and I'm just learning about it ,and this site! I'm getting all the bugs worked out and now I'm trying to work on the stuff that works but not perfectly,I didn't realize the plunger was so bad until the link broke and I took it apart to make a new one. I can see I'll have to bookmark a couple of the sources of parts!
