Treefrog thank you, yes it is a 5 slide (picture before last).

The slides seem not perfectly flat, but then again it is ~50years old, possibly more.

This is the machine:

Next job is a proper clean.

Also, would be great to reinstate the jackpot if possible. Anyone have the parts list for the mech/linkages that attach to the main mech chassis?

I think you have the wrong slides, as your award is set for 3 slides of varying sizes. The slides your shared all look the same size, a very common setup for decimal conversions on machines like Aristocrats.

Jackpot parts are tough to get. You need the reset bar, the trip on top of the slide stack, the top slide needs the jackpot post and you need a slide top cover with reset bar mount. Of course you will need a jackpot unit as well. |/XX\|

Thanks treefrog
They don't appear to sit right however for the most part do appear to work (now, after the advice to remove, clean, and replace). Doubt will ever get originals without switching back to old money.

Thanks for the view on reinstating the jackpot, the mech in the case is there, but as you point out also need the linkages in the body to fire the jackpot. A restoration too far for now.

I'll close this thread now and post other questions in new threads.

Thank you everyone for your help.
