Can anyone advise on any method of adjustment? I’m comparing it with a genuine Mills mech and cannot work out why one retracts fully while the other does not.
I recall a similar problem when I lived on the Isle of Wight and collecting old bandits was in its infancy (mid 1970s). The stepped link arm between the timing lever and the clock needed to be bent slightly to lengthen it.

The payout finger release lever might have been adjusted afterwards because messing around with one part often means another part needs to be set to compensate or the timing error will appear elsewhere.
