Been awhile since I was in here. I just picked up a short style adjustable jackpot version twelvewin clock. Mine is stamped on the mech and the cabinet #28, so does that mean this is a very early release and put it at 1947? It needs restored, but as dirty and neglected as it is, actually plays and pays out correctly so far, but don't want to use it much until I clean and oil it properly (I'll be using US .50c coins, but seems to run on any coin that is close to a large size English penny).
My questions (so far) are:
How do I set that inner payout indicator dial (for the proper payout numbers in the little circles to match what I have the payout lever set to...24);
Where does that jackpot lever go on the right side of the machine next to the coin tube? (When I re-positioned the mech as it was not bolted down), I placed it inside that "handle" on the side of the coin tube. Seems to want to go there, but the lower part of the "handle" doesn't raise high enough to trip the lever to release the jackpot door;
What is that single "L" bracket near the jackpot area for?
I can see bits of the black and gold under the paint (seems someone painted over it) thru holes in the repaint. Can I use stripper chemical to remove the top layer and not destroy/ remove the original crinkle finish?
Thank you all for your help, Rick from way over the other side of the great big pond (Ontario, Calif.)
