Yup ..... I said "A popular way of making a bandit go free play is to twist the rod (mentioned above) so that it misses the gap and fouls the plate. It has the same effect as finding a coin. Thus Free Play." Yours is fouling the plate.
By the way PB is my brother's maiden name.

Aahh I see, it's starting to make sense now. However, the lever and bar doesn't move at all when the handle is pulled, so I presume the next thing to work out is why not. I presume some connection is missing but can't see what.
Also, if you manually hold the bar forward through the gap, the handle still pulls. And I can't see how that should stop the handle pulling.
I've attached a side view of the workings, if that helps pinpoint what's missing.

Thank you all for your patience with me.

Your photo shows the mech isn't at rest (the handle is down).

Oops, sorry about that, I can't push it the last bit when it's out of its box. Here you go.

note to BP on the above:- do you think the "anvil" been set so the "dog" always catches the "anvil" regardless of the coin detector pushing it under when a coin is present?

I don't know Paul, I've recently worked on two bandits (one Poinsettia and one Ozzie) that were both doing this.
I put it down to old grease slowing the return against the pump and not allowing the anvil to get past before running out of momentum.
I'm gravitating towards advising OP strips and degreases the mech before attempting further fine tuning.
The photos aren't very clear but the coin probe certainly looks as if it's jammed off track against the plate, which of course would equate to "Free Play".

As you know I'm wary about guiding the uninitiated towards attacking the Dog & Anvil without a safety net. There's plenty about it on here which can be accessed through Search, as and when the time comes.

If it's anything like the ones I take it'd be looking in the wrong direction with the lens cap on.

If you mean by "the wrong direction" pointing towards you, then best to leave the lens cap on. :lol:
