Aristocrat mystery circuit board burnt resistors

Hi Guys, Long shot I know, but trying to find out the value of two resistors on an Aristocrat circuit board. At least two are badly burnt. I can't read them at all and I have no schematics to work from, so thought I'd try on here, in the hope someone can help identify them for me. I removed a second...

Re: Aristocrat Kingsway, Tic Tac Toe - or something else?

These few pics may be of help. I can get a few sizes if needed. On another game I fixed up recently I had to file out this square hole to make it bigger, so that it fitted a newer style lock that was slightly bigger. I removed the whole sliding mech, held it in a vice and I used a small square file ...

Re: Aristocrat Kingsway, Tic Tac Toe - or something else?

This guy is over here in Australia. He has all these Aristocrat art works for sale. Don't think he has the correct one you need, but good site for reference. I will have to get his email details from another collector here, if you have problems getting hold of him. Good luck with the machine. http:/...

Re: Wonders Hit-N-Run restore

I will use all the pics you guys have sent t...

Re: Wonders Hit-N-Run restore

Thank you Admin, that is brilliant. Didn't think the cashbox was that big, but it makes more sense now with the chamfered edge and the various slots inside the cab. Will knock one up in ply, and before gluing I will dry fit into the game, to make sure the door still closes and that it sends the coin...

Re: Wonders Hit-N-Run restore

Hit n Run back together working. Pays out up to 8 pennies if you load all 3 bases and make a home run. This game was missing the cash box and 1 or 2 coin chute parts. I made one coin chute plate to guide coins to the pay out tray. I made that out of thin stainless, after making up a template out of ...

Re: Fluorescent starters

Try F-20 starter 4-2 Watt 'HPM' brand or S-2. These mostly work well, but I have starters that refuse to work on Aristocrat Fluro's on 1970s era bandits.
Another one that works in my game: FE-T 4-22 Watt. That's an Aussie brand, also 'Clipsal'.
Good luck.

Re: Ball Past the Arrow hinges

Can you post a few photos?
Are the hinges loose because the screws are loose in the timber ?, or are the hinges knackered?
I am sure someone on here can tell you where you can get the correct hinges it needs , good luck
