New to slots, came across your forum while looking for repair info. Somewhat inherited a Mills High Top. Wasn't working, but with very little effort got it working OK. So now getting into the nitty gritty of things, putting some money into it. Feel if I'm going to own it I want it working correctly. It pays out, the jackpot worked, but the reserve didn't drop. Tore the jackpot out of it and will get to the bottom of it. Already know I need some parts. I love these forums because they offer good advice from knowledgable collectors.
Does anyone have any clear pics of the jackpot mechanism. I have a few issues that I believe are being caused by some bent parts. I have the jackpot assembly taken apart and a few of the pcs on the side appear to be bent. I don't want to straighten them, as I had done that with an item in the main mech and broke it, resulting in spending money I didn't need to. any help would be appreciated.
