Re: I was only following orders...

Belle Vue was certainly something unique in the UK and was truly massive. At its peak, it had a permanent circus, fairground, Zoo,water park and TWO 30,000+ seat stadiums.Here are two maps one early one later, also the only two photos I know of that show the amusement arcades and a very early view o...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

OK, while we have photos of the rear, let's be sure you are aware of what's going on during the wind-up in this area. I assume the plate you removed is (A). This takes a pounding and might be bent, but it should not make a difference unless it's very bad. This plate is a good indicator of the clock ...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

Looking at pics of other Aristocrat machines on this site I can see my dog is significantly past the horizontal. It only appears that way because, as TF righty says, it's not in the correct start position. When a machine has several problems at the same time it is, of course, a nightmare because on...

Re: Sega Progressive Star coin jam

The first thing to do is remove the escalator, dismantle it completely, and clean it. It will be dirty and it might be worn. When you get it apart, you will see where the coins have worn the inside plates. If this is very bad it can cause a permanent problem, but usually, a good clean and polish wil...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

OK, so it's looking more and more like you need to adjust the anvil. Read this from the "tips & tricks" section. I wrote this 4 years ago and it sounds remarkably like your machine's problems. If you decide to give it a try, take care. If you go too far, the machine will jam in the loa...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

OK, we had to fix the clock, and now we have. Perhaps tf and bp would like to comment at this point. To my eye, the machine doesn't load up fully, hence the short unwind. It's clear the clock doesn't fully load, and the slides don't move far enough forward, so we can assume nothing else is going the...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

The clock controls everything on the wind-down and the slide brake plays its part on every cycle. Its role is to hold the slides back while the machine decides if the game is a winner or a loser. It plays no part in the decision. In the photo of your machine attached, as you pull the handle the slid...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

Just took a look at your video and it seems the clock is not working at all!! The clock is there to slow everything down giving the reels time to spin. It should load up during the wind-up then slowly unwind (with the fin on the top acting as a governor) during the wind-down. It could be it's not lo...

Re: Aristocrat Moneytree

pleased to see things are moving in the right direction, a word of warning, never use grease,a very small amount of light sewing machine oil on moving parts that don't come into contact with coins (NEVER near any part that uses the coins) From what I can see the part you don't understand is the slid...
