I acquired a Pilwin 56 last year and have just got round to looking at bringing it back to life. The backflash was beyond repair so have had to replace that but otherwise all fittings seem to be original apart from a conversion at some time in the past to new pence - shame, as the original 1d slot is there but I don't have the parts or practical manufacturing ability to switch it back (somehow the light clink of a new penny doesn't have the same satisfying feel/sound of the old pennies).

It has 3 alternative payout fittings and I'm wondering if someone can let me know what number or word is missing from one of these, alongside the 6 and 2, as pic attached, as you will see that the paint has worn from this area. By dropping a ball into the gap to the right of the picture of this fitting I get a payout of 2 coins and a free ball but don't know if that is the intention.

Any advice or pic would be appreciated please as I've been unable to find anything on the site or on google.

Hi brian, take at look at the video that accompanies the Pilwin in the Museum. It shows all three payout cowls. There should be two slides (1 coin & 2 coin) to cover the payout options: Win - Win - Win (all 1s), 3 - 1 - 2, and 6 - 2 - 4.

OK - Silly question time - I've managed to convert the Pilwin 56 back to its original old penny payout (with many thanks to Lenny at Retro !!THUMBSX2!! ) instead of the (to me) cheap feel of the new penny it had been converted to, and thought I had finished, then I realised, having set it with the single penny payout slide, that when I "won" one penny it didn't return the ball for a free go, which made winning a bit pointless. :oops:
I know from other allwins there's usually a simple adjustment to have a ball return to play on a win, but to save me starting dismantling again to have another look can anyone tell me where am I looking on the Pilwin please? :!?!:
