    Pull the mech out. Easier to move the mech and body separately.

    Like a pinball machine, it will eventually gum up again and be pretty messy. Ideally you'd want to get rid of all that and use sewing machine oil, and there's a a couple of pivot points that require grease. The Aristocrat service manual describes it all pretty well

    The last one I did a couple of years ago was mostly grease gone hard but it also had a coin slot feeding issue & that took time to sort, Really needed some new bits but I got around the problem in the end. Haven't heard any more from the owner so I assume it's still going good.

    Yep, probably overstated with " Chuck it on the back seat" LOL

    They weigh a tonne and need to blokes to move them.....

    If you can get Timbo to drop it off when he's through next, it will give me time to look at it. If it's not a basket case and I fix it, you could take it home when you leave my Pinball meet.

    You need to know straight up that no manufacture will sell you spare parts or supply any data or information as it's an offense for them to do so.
    You will just need to work your way though it & make any parts you may need.

    Thank you, NANNY STATE OF VICTORIA.
    Yep, thanks. Am aware of the rules.

    I could also tell you that itís an ex-copper who has it, apparently one of many that were Ďremovedí from venues in the North Melbourne area many years ago.

    I was interested to know a bit more about it as I donít have a lot of space, and may offer it to one of my AA brethren if I canít fit it in anywhere......

    Mike.

    Funny how a copper owned it, "Do As I say, Not what I do". Well, if you need it to go to a good home I give it one. I have the room & have repaired a few over the years.
