Here's the power switches they list. Yours looks like it has 4 wires so get one that is for 4 wires.

If you're not sure which one to use just give them a call, they will help you.

I got an original Popeye that was converted to a Black Tiger. It has the original Bezel and other misc. parts. I am missing the game PCB, the cage, the marquee and the control panel / overlay. It was painted black and I am guessing the side art was ruined. I am looking for parts for Popeye but was thinking maybe it would be better to restore it to a DK. What do you guys think? Before I get too far.

If your going cost more then enjoyment I would say Popeye the pcb is not that sought after like dk and the CPO, Marquee and Side art will be the same price as Donkey Kong

If your going for the easier restore route I would still say Popeye less work but if your going for fun factor That's up to you.

Just pulling the the SBC board out of the socket can hurt them. Those boards pins are way thicker then chip legs and those old sockets only make contact with one side of the leg or pin. Newer dual wipe sockets make two points of contact with each pin or leg. Putting the SBC in backwards is a very common mistake. Check out lawnmowerman Pacman page. He has tons of screen shots of Pac errors to help trouble shoot. Mikes arcade also has a lot in his tech area.

Great read.  They had some setbacks but with help from the right people and some luck they were able to overcome.  Clearly a labor of love as so much work was involved.

If you follow the Galloping Ghost Arcade FB group, I think even the hardest core arcade preservation enthusiasts would appreciate the story of their development of a dedicated Williams' Splat cabinet. It is an amazing story and they were able to create the cabinet for public play at their arcade.

As I have said before, their arcade has grown and improved by leaps and bounds since John visited there.

Recent additions, original, dedicated Fast Freddie, Q*Bert's Qubes, Bank Panic, and Super Punch Out! cabinets!! They also hosted the GGA BOTA tournament and it was a great experience! Aside from a ROM glitch on Zoo Keeper, all of the games were working great and, you guessed it, were in original cabinets. 

That is all... looking forward to my next visit.

That switch is a goner. It doesn't look like the original switch anyhow. I'd go on the web and look for a new one.
Do you know of any places I can find one online? What should I type in?
