Anyone know if i can put this back on the switch? fell in the cabinet

Secondly..trough boards are gone. 61 closed, 62, rest open..they were
fillthy.

Also says switch 57 Top Drop Target is CLOSED> Should it be?

Finally- upper left flipper switch F8 (not used)..suspect is left
flipper opto: 03-9001

    No idea. What game? What switch? Need more info.

    Ball trough opto boards are very hard to find anymore- discontinued for
    years now and the last few that I know FAO and other large dealers had went
    sold out a year or two ago. Not sure if anyone would have any left. If you
    do find any new ones, probably expect a high price. May be better to try and
    find some off another game (parts machine). Sounds like what probably
    happened to them on your game (robbed to fix another game?)

    Closed if target is down. Open if target is up. This would be for a
    Bally/Williams game with mechanical switch. If opto, then it's the
    opposite.

    Probably bad opto on that board. We have new replacement boards- see:

    Part # for the lock and plate assy is A-13379 but sort of a longshot you'd
    be able to find one new- discontinued for many years now, but may not hurt
    to call around and check. Or rob one off another game/parts machine and
    install a new lock. You'd need security torx bit to remove the screws from
    the old unit in order to replace and/or get in the backbox.

    It can be snapped back on, two sets of pins on the switch just for this. If
    switch is worn, you'll need to replace it.

    57 - when target is down it should be closed, when up it should be open.

    Left flipper - F8, there are two optos on the flipper button opto board, an
    easy check is to swap the left and right flipper button opto boards and
    check in shwitch edge test and see if the problem moves. LTG :)

    I just got the lock and plate assembly from PBR:

    Backbox lock and plate A-13379 $7.66

    Comes in two pieces. I forgot to check if they had the screws.
