Can anyone identify this part?
« on: December 29, 2009, 08:32:22 pm »
Can anyone help identifying this part? It is made by Gottlieb, and consists of three solenoid coils mounted on an angle bracket, containing a steel rod with a clear acrylic cylinder with chrome edging. No part numbers or anything like that etched on it. The coils can make it take any of three positions, beyond that I don't know what it's for.

Edit: The coil numbers are A-26450

Just guessing, but could it be a stop gate of some kind?
To block off a pathway or maybe raise an incline,
Ah, I dunno.  :dunno  I'll just shut up now.

The coils can make it take any of three positions

i'm not really sure but i would think that the coils arranged like they are would not exactly work.

i mean energizing any coil would cause no movement. since the rod goes completely through the others, there is no "air" gap in the solenoid coil to facilitate movement. unless there is acrylic on the rod too, but i'd think it would be too brittle to sustain repeated use.

unless the resting position is aaaaaaall the way out, and the coils pull in the rod one position at a time.... any idea what game it might be from?

Are you sure they didn't pull that thing from a machine on a porn site?
