Left gun launcher. Under playfield. Motor swings topside gun turret from left to right. There is a plastic piece that attaches to the motor shaft that engages another plastic piece that is attached to the gun launcher above the playfield, thus when activated, pans the gun turret from left to right. Both of these pieces have snapped off (broken.) I need the left gun launcher plastic set (described) at this time, but would purchase both plastic sets for both sides if available. I have disabled the left gun turret in the settings, but would really like it to work again. Would even be interested in the whole left under playfield motor assembly--if available. Thanks for any help, RIC

Marco Specialties or Planetary Pinball should have those. Break out your
operators manual to find the correct part
number.

If you don't have the operators manual download it here:

I just had to replace the small crank on my Star Trek.
Actually, it's quite a chore.. It's a roll pin. You have to remove
the entire assembly... TAKE PICTURES! Note it says Addams but it's the
correct part for STTNG... Hint: once I got the roll pin lined up,
I used a small clamp to slowly push it in. Getting it lined up is a joy...

Here's the marco parts:

What a find. Ron was right on the money in both cases. Plastic arms fit perfectly and boy was he right about the difficulty of replacing both arms. Total disassembly above and below the playfield. And don't get me started on that (*#@)%*^ roll pin. He was spot-on about the double ball trying to load below the playfield after a game and diagnosing the problem. So thank you Ron. I now have a perfectly working STTNG. Nice work! Thanks, RIC

No problem. Glad to help another pinhead.
Wish I could fathom what's going on with your Tales From the Crypt fuse blowing....
