Quite possibly. 

I *think* the easiest way to measure them is wrap a piece of string around the ball and then measure the string?

Aren't trackball sizes the diameter? If so, you need to get your calculator out and divide the string length (circumference) by Pi.

Or, if you have 2 'things' you can use as sort of book ends, you could plonk the trackball in between them and measure the gap. Tongue

Hey Chris,

I'm converting a empty Dunk Sot to a Tehkan World Cup

Take it your going to use original PCB? So you just need Standard Trackballs then?
 
Says it came with 4 Trackballs, aren't any of them good to use

The golden T trackballs are not the same inside in the ones I've got :-(

I will be using an original PCB, so need standard trackballs.  I can't use the ones from the Dunk Shot because they are 2 1/4", whereas the Tehkan WC ones are 3" ones.  Frothmeister corrected me one that.  I had to get my panels modified to accept the 3" trackballs as I original had it cut for the dunkshot sized trackballs.

I was looking at the Happ 3" trackballs, but according to a guy on Klov, despite the fact they are roughly the same size, they are not drop in replacments as the opto boards are not suitable apparently.

Hi Ben, this any good to you? Not tested and has had wires soldered direct to the boards.

Might have more as have a box full of trackballs.

Even has Tehkan on the pcbSmile

Surprised the Dunk Shot ones are smaller, suppose though with 2 each side in table machine there big enough, those 2 1/4" ones would be great size for mame cabs

Hi Ben had a bit of a sort through, most have damaged plastics, but guess a few could be made good, still not found the box of optical boards, but a few still have tehken boards in place. Other pics are to show the chaos these are stored in.

Oh man !  I am in shock! Shocked  Unreal!

A couple of those would be great please!  Maybe a blue and red one which have the best plastics if possible.

You also have the spacers and carriage bolts that would be really useful.

Drop me a PM or email and we'll sort out payment etc

Thanks for looking into this dude.  Much appreciated!
