Sorry Chris, I don't know what lock nuts and 8 - 32 hex bolt you're describing.
Any chance of a photo?

BP :cool:

Sorry, can't paste an image from a PDF but I shall try and clarify. The adjustment is on the sliding link between the clock and the arm that releases the payout fingers. Owing to the age difference between the Jewel/High Top and the Roman Head, there might be some minor differences.

These photos from the 1930s operators manual might help you describe the parts you mean to BP. Yes, the machine is different from the Hi-top. As I'm sure you know, the names we give Mills machines today are not always the name the factory used. What we call a "Roman Head" was sold by the factory as the "Golden Bell". The 1st photo is from an original sales flyer.

There’s a Golden Bell on tonight’s episode of “back in time for the corner shop” bbc 2.

A one arm bandit seemingly freely available to play by buying tokens from the corner shop owner in 1926.Not heard of that before in the UK.

You could post the PDF.
I copied the images above and zoomed them up to see the small details but there was no rear view. Unfortunately, the innards look different in several places so there must have been several improvements made in the post war years.
