Isn't it just a ball with a protruding spike which sticks in a hole in the wheel?

Yes, I changed one using same Delrin balls and drilled a hole, as close to the size of the screw head, filled with a strong glue and tap in to right depth. Then leave 24 hours to cure.......worked for me !THUMBS!

Beware... I have used this trick before... one of my old jukeboxes sounded awful... but after 10 pints of Guinness it sounded fantastic. Unfortunately the following day it sounded even worse.

:D

all the best.... Dicky
