I think it’s a mixture of the timing out and incorrect reel labels. Misalignment and the fingers do not go into the holes correctly. I have put this one aside while I work on another machine now.

Today I learned the importance of the coin tube push lever overflow spring! Couldn’t understand why the machine was constantly jamming before discovering the overflow leave a spring was missing.

I installed a mech into the yellow cabinet machine today. It seems quite an early mech as the timing bar is different from the others. Pics attached.

That clock needs lightly oiling. Better still, if you can remove it and totally dismantle it. Could go another 50 years if you treat it well. :D

I have learnt so much about these machines since purchasing them. Thank you to everyone on the forum for all of the help.
Today I have been cleaning and removing one of the clocks. I think I’ve just about cracked it now. Managed to make three good machines from the five broken ones. Need lots of bits though to make up the Boland machine. Anyone know of a good resource to acquire a hightop bonnet?
