Tech tip: yellow rubber bumper sleeve fitment

Post by cad-kid » Sat Oct 22, 2016 10:13 pm

After talking to one of my pinball friends and mentioning that I have 2 of these big yellow rubbers on my game (Truck Stop). He said "wow those are a pain to install". Here's a trick I have used putting a seal on a carburetor accelerator pump shaft. Use a ball point pen cap or part of the pen (like I did tonight) to guide the piece over flat top of the post. Of course a little lube helps as well :lol: This trick saves a ton of time and frustration.

That's better than my method... "push real hard on the top and swear when the screw head jabs my finger." :)
