The meter was taken out of use because it could not pay 100 coins plus the meter reading. The gaming laws dictated that all awards must be paid by the machine. Prior to that, you could claim it from the bar staff and the meter would be set to zero. The meter linkage was missing on mine but I fitted a spring to connect the Shefras escalator to the meter and it works well.

Thanks treefrog and chris rideout for the advice - it's very helpful.
Now I need to find a meter unit and a linkage or spring to connect it to the Shefras as suggested. Do you have a photo of the spring connection by any chance?
As these parts were removed from the machines to comply with updated the laws I am hoping someone may have a box of spares somewhere with them in.
I will place an Ad in the parts wanted section and keep my fingers crossed. |/XX\|
