    Oh THOSE flipper pawls... hmmm

    If none can be found anywhere, and people need a replacment.... been made once, can be made again!

    Myself or any machinist could do a refurb of existing cranks, or remakes as one offs, as a last (more expensive) resort....

    I was kinda picturing bigger issues like:

    worn bore (from working loose)
    cracked plate
    severely rusted
    We were also talking about Hacksaws!?

    *hacksaw fair enough, except maybe if cranks arent available*?


    also swap sides and have new grub screw hole?




    If biting the bullet and getting the drill, go Straight for the tapping size for the thread, drill it square and the grub screw should keep it in line for you. Going far enough would violate the flipper shaft a little.

    How to remove stubborn screws

    Unfortunately with the system 1 type itís nigh (yes nigh) impossible to get a drill into drill out. Hence (yes hence) the hacksaw blade (1 ended handle grip type) is needed to remove the shaft from the game.

    Not always but sometimes necessary.

    Possibly a suicide disc on a dremel.

    Sometimes even getting an Allen key in is a challenge.

    I think I have about 6 Gottlieb pawls here plus other Gottlieb system 1 flipper parts. Anyone after them I will straight swap them for the equivalent Bally SS or Williams WPC part. I figure if I ever get a Gottlieb machine here that is mine I would most definitely change the flipper assemblies on it for either Bally SS or WPC style flipper assemblies anyway so they are parts I have no use for but not interested in selling them, just swapping like for like.

    Iíll see what I can dig up but donít want to take them all in case someone else needs some.

    Also a few later EMs use the system 1 flippers.

    Exactly same reason, flogged out shaft from the screws.

    Gottlieb is a different breed altogether.

    Thanks Jeff.
