On the multiball lock stack, there must be a gate which prevents the already locked balls from being kicked out from their stack and put in the game. This part is missing on my machine. Only the "bridge" is there, but the gate has gone.

Anybody to tell me where I can find that part ?

Thank you

Thanks for the reply. Don't see it on their catalog for x-men.

Would you mind having a look ?

Thanks again

I have sent a mail to Terry, lets see what I ll get back

For the tool, I have set of piano wires and a tool supposed to bend them. For a thin wire, no issue. For a strong one, such as the ones on pinballs, I simply cannot make it. If I find no replacement, yes I will make a home made stuff

Thanks to both of you

Answer from Terry

"We do not stock this"

I wish I could. Over here it is not legion. I have the wire but not the adequate tool.

You are right, but since recently, Marco changed its shipping policy to Europe. Where you could get a simple envelope for a few bucks, the minimal shipping fee is now 50$. They got rid of 3 alternate possibilities.

Yes, I have sent a message to Ryan, to check if he agrees to send the part for a decent price .

Otherwise, can someone in the US order for me and send by post (i paypal in advance) ?

I have tried to order at MArco, and surprisingly, postage fee was normal as in the past. I do not understand. On the one hand they tell me they have changed their policy, and indeed I noticed for small parts that the minimum fee was 50$, here it is 7$.

I have ordered.

Thanks for the good advices

Quoted from vireland:

$7 is like parking meter money in Europe. It's almost like you got it for free!

Haha !!!! You are right regarding the parking meter

Sorry, usually I close my thread with the outcome.

I got the right reference from Stern, which is not the one you gave to me (I ll reuse them, no worries). and I have ordered at Marco, now it is ok. Only, as the part is not the original one, the stays sometimes stuck at the top left of the locking lane.

Yes I found it.

Please double check with Stern or Marcospec. But if I remember well this is the part you are looking for
