I have one at home. I can't remember offhand what actually winds the reel mech. on a Bally, but I'll try and get a look when I get in.
You say the mech. operates outside of the cabinet? Well, that sounds promising. It's just a 'missing link' somewhere.
My first thought was that you weren't getting the mech. into the cabinet properly, but on a Bally, that's virtually impossible.
I should know more by tomorrow.

The handle solenoid needs to pull down after you insert a coin. Check the solenoid operates when you insert a coin.

If the solenoid operates correctly then your problem lies within the handle mech. Tthese can become seized with hardened grease.

The handle moves at the front of the machine. It's just the flat lever at the back of the machine, that pushes the reel deck and sets it spinning, isn't moving?

Does the handle release solenoid operate when you insert a coin?

Yes ....

but you can't pull the arm all the way down or it gets stuck, as the back paddle isn't moving the thing you push down on manually (when deck is out the machine) to send the reels spinning.

Then your problem almost certainly lies within the handle mech. You have to remove it and clean it.

Thing is... I don't know how to and how do I know it's complete and nothing is missing or broke?

You won't know if there is anything missing or broke till you look inside. Remember, this was assembled in the first place so you must be able to dismantle it.

From what I can see it's bolted on to the side of the case. If so, remove the nuts and see if it comes off. You will then see if it's bunged up with old grease. It will need cleaning anyway, so taking it off can't hurt. Once it's off see if it works by hand and report back.
