Re: Seeking Aristocrat service manual

Hello Phan000,

I have one. It is a copy of a copy and the quality of the print is ok but not brilliant. I bought it from a guy in Australia. Do you want a copy? I do not know how it will turn out though.

Hello Treefrog,

thank you for your help. So far I had no luck. Two out of three are not around or in business anymore and the third option did not answer.

Re: Need help on my Mills War Eagle restoration

Hello Treefrog,

thank you for the quick reply but 10 inches can not be. That would be a little bit over the center of the machine!

Hello Slotey, You made my day! You made it look easy! I tried it out and it works just as you described. Thank you! I added a picture of the bar you described where the lever releases the jack pot door or locks it when the mechanism is pulled out of the housing. Maybe it helps somebody else also. Do...
