I am missing parts from within the pull arm assembly. That's why the arm doesn't pull back, retract and engage the reels spinning. In this thread my last few posts I have put up diagrams of what parts I am missing.
Thanks for the replies.

Bally Money Tree

Topic merged - Site Admin.

Hi,
I have just purchased a Bally Money Tree slot. It is working fine with only a couple of issues with the lighting. Does anyone have any history of these machines or bulb information?
Thanks in advance...

I've had 3 or 4 Ballys but sold the last two I had, some years ago. Electrical issues in general tend not to be areas of expertise for some active posters on the site, including me so I generally leave it to more experienced posters to chip in and help you. I know you mentioned lighting. Maybe if you could elaborate on the issues and specify exactly with pictures too, it may prompt a quicker reply. You could also use the search facility to check if any covered previously?

As aristo says, photos and details are everything. If the lighting is the same as the usual "Money Honey" series it can only be three things: the tubes, the starters or the choke (or any combination of the three). All can be bought online, although the chokes are getting harder to find as they are pretty much obsolete. Let's see some photos and details of what's happening.

A Greaves conversion.
There's a wiring diagram for it on here somewhere.

Does anybody know how to replace tubes/bulbs behind glass at the bottom of the machine and what type/voltage are the small bulbs at the top?
Thank you...

The belly glass has to come off to change the lighting tubes.
There are numerous small nuts to undo, after which it usually doesn't come loose. It's generally stuck solid, and you have to ease it slowly, round and round, trying not to break anything.
I've just remembered why I lost interest in these machines!

Hi
It appears that there is nothing on the outside of the machine to remove the glass. Can you tell me where the nuts are situated? Are they hidden away somewhere?
