    Red coin insert plates have been filed out to suit 20 cent coins. Cleaned and adjusted some of the mechs, but some coins still get rejected. I think its because the mechs are not level. I have 3 inch leg levelers wound up on the back. I desoldered the freeplay wires and soldered them back to the coin switch.

    My "bush mechanics" solution was some cardboard cut out to suit... i know its dodgy but its now working everytime a coin goes through...

    Then comes your big test when you have to start the Playfield swap over, make sure you take heaps and heaps of pics of everything

    You should start a thread for the pf swap. I could use a bit of a guide / heads up of what to expect

    If you can find a piece of cardboard about the right size, you can use it like a slide sheet. Slide it between the wiring/mechs and playfield, and then slide everything screen to the new PF approximately in the correct position, slide cardboard out.
