Ah, I got you, so the sliding locking lever on the other side engages too soon for the slide to deploy.

Timing issue... A number of options... I would first have a look at the thread from a few weeks ago. I added some options to increase the time on the timing bar that controls the slide release lever. The option 2, the nut on top of the clock, is a good start as you need to extend the time on the timing lever.

Also if you have bent the master slide with the upright metal part holding the slides, this will affect the release lever, so bent towards slides will cause lever to release early. Someone may have bent this before to try and address the issue.

Thanks treefrog,

The master slide was bent back away from the slides. I straightened it so it was upright.

I did try screwing that screw clockwise so the bar at the back of the slides would clear the slides earlier (if that's correct) but did not want to mess too much with that before I got some proper advice.

Will have a look at that thread now.

Thanks Ronnie

I think OP is saying that the cycle is stopping at the fourth clunk.
If so, try strengthening the spring that pulls the clock back.

I don't understand the reference to a pay out on a lemon. Perhaps I also need to read the whole thread again.
Don't give up, you're on the final run.

BP :cool:

1 lemon should pay same as 1 cherry but via another finger. I do get the 5 clunks - maybe I'm not explaining well. I will do a video and try and upload it later.

treefrog, I have tried your first 2 methods but still no joy. When the horizontal finger is kicked out, it springs back before the payslide can trigger. Should this finger stay out until the slide can move back?

So we are talking about the right parts here - when you say horizontal payout finger, you are talking about the stack of 6 or 5 horizontal ones that each have a spring at the back? If so, and you say it moves away from the slides, but springs back so it locks the slides after a win. First question, is there a spring at the back? Next, I have had similar issues when the vertical finger engages the win holes, but bounces back, so not allowing the lower fingers to release the slide, due to an incorrect spring being used. Over tight vertical springs can cause issues, as well as ones too loose. Check this first.

Thanks, I will check the springs again, one does look new on the lower fingers, I will do a short video and take a few pics.

Cheers Ronnie

Hope this short video highlights the problem maybe in the timing?



The top springs are stronger than the bottom set but look right to me?

Have attached some pics too

Thanks Ronnie

Just to answer an early question you asked, the horizontal fingers have to move away from the slides while the slide brake is still holding the slides back and stay there. As Tom says, the master slide has most likely been bent to solve the problem. Now you have put it back to the correct position. It's made things worse, but that's good in a way, as you can now address the original problem.

I don't know this machine well, but lemon wins are VERY rare. The lemon is traditionally a loser in American culture. Do all the other payouts work correctly? The vertical springs look good (as long as they are not too strong). The horizontal springs do look a bit of a mixed bunch. These springs are always a bit odd. They need to be surprisingly weak, yet strong enough to pull the finger quickly and hold it in place. Have you checked that the fingers have no dirt on the pivot causing them to stick?

Thanks for the help guys. In the case of a cherry win I can see the finger being kicked away from the slides, but it seems to go back behind the slide before it can slide?

The lemon win is the bottom finger and looks to be a new spring, but feels as weak as the rest, but I will try swapping it with one of the others.

I have not checked all the wins yet, but it seems mostly the 2 and 3 reel wins work apart from 2 oranges and the star type symbol, but I have seen it fail on 2 cherries. I will try and check them all, but as you said, it may be worse now after bending the master slide.

Thanks Ronnie
