"B" also has another function that is related to your original problem. The coin needs to stop for a second while the detector pin comes forward to check for a coin; the lever "B" holds it in place while this happens then, if a coin is detected, the lever you are having all the trouble with moves down as you pull the handle, pushing the coin onward past the spring loaded "B". In fact, that is the only job your troublesome top lever is there for.

A quick view this morning showed me that the handle doesn't go all the way up (as treefrog stated ). If I use just a little bit of force I can see that the coin detector lever wants to come free.
I don't want to force it, I don't want to bend any levers or something.
I oiled the machine a bit, it was a bit dry as coppinpr stated.
Maybe a lost coin somewhere as gameswat stated?
I have to look into this tomorrow. I have a day off so I can take my time. |/XX\|

Today I took the time to look into the machine.
I cleaned and oiled the machine, looked for loose coins; there where none.
I removed 2 bugs in the 1st reel (2 of the 10 positions were bugged).
Then I started to play the machine.
After a few times bypassing the coin mechanism, the machine started to work as it should. It came loose.
I played the machine for a few hours and it's working fine now.
Only thing that doesn't work is the jackpot payout. I have to look into that.
I want to thank you all for your advice and your patience.

That's all good news. When you say two positions were "bugged", do you actually mean bugged (something that causes the reel to avoid stopping at that point) or do you mean "plugged" (blanks added to the payout discs to block a payout). If it is the latter, no problem, but make sure you also remove the reel strip overlays that correspond to the changed payouts.!THUMBS!

Coppinpr, two holes of the first reel were plugged, so there were less positions left for the "10" to stop.
Now I have to search the forum why I don't get payout when the reels stop at tripple A (Jackpot ). I have realy no idea yet how the payouts work on a slotmachine, but I'm learning. :lol:
I'm glad that the machine works, I assume it was in storage for a very long time.

I think you miss the top 2 coin slide like my machine did. If my eyes don’t fool me you have a 2, 3, 5, 4 and 4 coin slides.

I think I see all the slides and there is no gap. It is a 3 2 5 4 4 2.

Guys, how can I see if it's a 2, 3, 4 or 5? !PUZZLED!

The thickness of the slide tells the value.
If it's two coins thick, it pays 2, etc..

Yes it is just an educated guess by looking at the depth of the slides and award plate, so not 100%.... Your award card follows this with the lowest award 3 coins (bottom slide) then 5 payout (so bottom and second slide up which is 2 coin, meaning 5 in total)... and you follow this process up to the top slide which is used for the top award of 20 coins.

It is surprising how often I see machines for sale missing slides. The Jubilee machine at yesterday’s Eastbourne sale was missing slides. Also the last Clubmaster at the Elephant House auction again missing slides, even though described as working condition...
