Coil Substitutions and Equivalents

by Steve Midgette

Here at Marco Specialties, we get a lot of questions from people asking about coil substitutions.  Let’s preface by saying we always recommend replacing a coil with the same part number as the original. Remember, a weak flipper probably won’t be fixed by replacing the coil with a stronger one, and changing to a non-factory recommended coil can cause damage to plastics, drop targets and ramps.

Fastener Part Numbering System Explained

by Paul Mandeltort

When dealing with screws, nuts, and bolts, understanding the cryptic part numbers can simplify ordering.

The last 2 digits (XX) of the 4 digit fastener part numberprefix (40XX-12345-12) indicates the standard stud size of the bolt or screw. For example, part #4006-01030-12 indicates a #6 stud diameter (.138″) fastener. The 2 digit part number suffix for bolts and screws (-12, -04, -16, etc) indicates the number of 1/16″ length increments of the fastener. For example, part #4004-01003-04 indicates a screw that is 4/16″ long or 1/4″ long.  Click “Read More” at the top right for more information.
