I worked out that my Baby Pacman monitor was a Wells Gardner 2061433-40 (K4800). I’ve found various people advertising cap kits in the US but nothing in the UK. So I decided to write a list of capacitors that would be included in the kit, so I can source these individually in the UK. Hopefully this information will also be useful to others:

I’ve been waiting for some supplies from the US for my Baby Pacman arcade game, and they’ve arrived today:

This includes replacement:

Cabinet side art
Control panel artwork
Spinner decals
Pinball drop targets
Pinball rubbers
Rubber post caps

and I sourced a couple of things from the UK:

and of course, the most important thing….brand new balls!

Looking forward to knocking the cabinet into shape over the coming weeks/months

Baby Pacman now fairly empty

I’ve now removed 95% of the components inside the Baby Pacman. I just need to remove the locks, buttons and monitor frame and I can make a start on restoring the cabinet

I came across some concerning things as I removed the parts. The monitor was held onto the cabinet with a single screw, that was incredibly loose. I’m very surprised the monitor hadn’t previously fallen out of the cabinet.

Also the Anode cap, on the back of the monitor, looked damaged and was literally hanging off the monitor loose!
