Aristo Sweet N' Sour

Not sure if these made it to the UK back in the day. It's a 1977 Aristocrat Sweet N' Sour. One of the last mechanicals before they transitioned to hoppers, PCB's and credit displays. Whats interesting about this one is the "Feature" Get 2 cherries on the first 2 reels and it pays 5 coins. ...

Re: Aristocrat Payout help needed.

Ah, thanks for that :) Yeah there's just one finger that isn't retracting away from the disk far enough by like 1mm. The rest are fine. Changing springs doesn't help.

Re: Aristocrat Payout help needed.

Success! OK, forgive the lack or correct parts terminology, but on the pic below, I loosened the top bolt and tapped the tongue looking thing back so it was flush on the end. This allowed the reset bar to travel further forward and complete the cycle :) b50e8efe-03fc-431a-8ce2-f4c293502995.jpg Now, ...

Re: Aristocrat Payout help needed.

Yep, not sure on the technical name for the part. But you can see it in the pic below. It moves a little bit, but not enough to retract the fingers out of the payout discs. 20150918_091141.jpg I have a feeling I'm going to have to remove the reels to get a better look, but I'm a bit weary. Is the pr...

Re: Aristocrat Payout help needed.

OK, so I can eliminate the springs being the issue, as I replaced them all with good ones from my Aristo which is similar. What I did notice, is with all the springs off and cycling the mech. The bar that retracts the payout fingers advances forward as it should, but after the 4 reels click into pos...

Re: Aristocrat Payout help needed.

Thanks!
Do you have a link for the springs?. All I can find are bags of 100 from the USA for crazy money.

Aristocrat Payout help needed.

Hey guys. I'm helping a mate here in AU with his Aristocrat "Super Star" 4 reel mech. He picked it up the other day and it was set up to play without coins. When I first saw it and gave it a spin, I observed the 4 reels clicking and locking as normal, No click for the payout fingers to loc...

That's a nice Bobby D. Essentially the same game as my Honey Bee, but with different graphics. :)

Re: Aristocrat need to identify missing parts

Although these machines are from Aus, getting a matching mechanism I suspect will be a challenge.....I would have bought something complete as a project to restore maybe.....As Aristomatic mentioned, one of our fellow members from Aus may advise on availability.. Yep, gonna be very difficult findin...
