Since being stuck in the corner of my workshop since March 2010, I have finally got round to bring this back to life. There are a few plumbing parts missing I could do with if any one has them. The chute that sits on top of the 10p tube and catches the coins from the S1 mech. The complete chute that sends the 5p coins to the cash box. Black coin entry labels that go on the front. Any condition S1 mechs with front plate for this machine. 5p and 10p. 50v lock outs for S1. Have given everything a good clean and service and will then put the machine to one side until the parts become available. Have not powered it up yet, but did run the reel motor which showed the gear box needed a good clean. Will post some pictures soon. Thanks in advance for any leads.

Have the remains from a rotten Sundance (diff cab but perhaps some of the tubes are compatible?)

If you feel like having a measure up and posting some photos, i'll do same ...

(recall large grey square section type and also circular translucent green/blue with white rib flexi type)

 

Think Ron and/or another member had a go at reproducing the coin entry tags due to the number that have got lost/removed over the years.


clunker!

Here are a few pictures. The power unit cleaned up nicely. You can see what's needed although I do have a 10p tube.Attached File  20180115_102555.jpg   247.96KB   1 downloadsAttached File  20180115_102454.jpg   177.06KB   1 downloadsAttached File  20180115_102441.jpg   233.22KB   1 downloadsAttached File  20180115_101743.jpg   128.67KB   1 downloads

Machine coming along nicely. The meters cleaned up well and as was usual in the past, the hold selector had been well trimed. The hold after win wire had been completely removed. Just need a few plumbing parts and S1 mechs still.

Steve I have some of that grey tubing but it came from a jpm impact machine so might not be exactly the same?

Nearly there. Just waiting for a few parts. A couple of questions that Ron could probably answer.

 

What is the hold limiter timer for? CS29-31

 

Also there is a wiring mod around the 5p, 10p and 50p in relays with an added cam switch on the main timer. Was this circuit change issued by Bell Fruit or some operator hack?
