Re: Watling Rol a top 50cent

So I have everything working except the jackpots. Can anyone explain how the jackpots operate or recommend a good book on it?
Does the coin tube feeding the payout slides have to be completely full before the jackpots start filling? I haven't found any missing parts. The flapper in front of the jackpots hangs straight down It looks like it may have had a spring on it to hold it horizontal but I don't know??????? Any help would be appreciated.

A good book is the owner's pictorial guide for Watling. Great book. Has great information on the jackpot and all mechanical components with lots of pictures. There is one on eBay now with a starting price of $10.00 + $3.17 shipping. Good price. He spelled it OWNERA instead of owner's.

The jackpot starts self filling only after the coin tube is completely full. There was a very light spring that held that jackpot flap in a horizontal position. Is not as important to have the very light spring on a 50 cent machine but it would, if it was a dime machine.

The flapper is hanging straight down no spring. When the coin tube is full and the coins roll to the jackpot they fall to the coin box area because the flap doesn't direct them to the jackpot box.

See anything missing from this picture other than the spring? Where does the spring go? On the flap tab on the right?
