Re: Newbie seeks Jubilee Riviera help

If this machine was originally on two pulls for 10p, converting it to one pull for 10p will surely have the effect of halving the payout percentage. From around 80% to 40% making it an unattractive machine to play?

Re: Sega Windsor bulb?

44/47 bulbs (lamps) are 6 volt bulbs as used in pinball machines and are easy to find if you do a search.

Re: Nickel Plating

I have found home nickel plating very successful. Time consuming yes but rewarding and you can fit the parts tomorrow! I'm sure the kits are good but I got the Canning electroplating handbook from the library and got my supplies independently. Good luck with it.

Re: ACE Automatic Coin Eqpt "Ring-a-bell"

These are straightforward machines to work on but as I remember everything is working on 240 volts so be careful. Make sure all earth links are connected. Good luck.

Re: Still need a 1p S10 Mechanism

Make sure the coin mech is completely clean. The cradle should be taken off by removing the circlip, and the pivot pin cleaned. Also clean the cradle pivot hole by forcing a matchstick into it and twisting. Reassemble and test.
