I was thinking this one

Any suggestions?

Cheers, Geoff

Geoff,
I just checked the Meteor playfield I have here and the short answer is both types are required.

The Marco C-11562-20 measuring 1 3/16 inch or 31mm is the slightly taller of the two and there are 4 required. They are used on the slingshot assemblies and from what I can see nowhere else.

The Marco C-11561-20 measuring 1 inch or 26mm according to my ruler is the smaller of the two and bears great similarity to a Dr Who Dalek and there are 47 required. These are used in all other places to hold up the plastics and also behind the drop targets.

From what I can see this looks like it is right because sometimes you may find these have been changed to a different type because that is all the operator had to replace them with.
I would certainly order a few extra of each just to cover any I may have missed.

Pinball Resource also have them here http://www.pbresource.com/signatur.html
but the Marco ones look identical to the ones I have here.

Cheers
Chris

Bloody hell Nino, you didn't do a very thorough job of that playfield resto, I swore I saw a speck of dust there!.

Mate your standards are slipping.

Beautiful. :) Thanks for the info. It is a tad hard to judge sizes from pics :D

Ordered a few other things too, like a new plunger assembly :)
