Best way to fix Vertical finger rubbing on reel disk.

Postby pb4sc » Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:45 pm

Hi Everyone,
Can anyone give me advice how to attack this problem. It seems like a couple of my vertical fingers are not getting pushed far enough out of the way, so they are rubbing on the reel disk when I cycle the machine. This is leading to the first reel not spinning. I was thinking of trying to bend the vertical fingers back, but also thought it could be related to the reel disk bundle not being positioned correctly. Any advice would be much appreciated.

A few possible things. The fingers are longer than others. The push back bar is bent or worn. The 4th click in back is worn or not properly adjusted. These are the main problems but there can be others.

Check to see if there is any adjustment that can be made to move the reel bundle away from the upper payout fingers by loosening the top screws that hold down the reel bundle shaft. If there is, move the bundle away as far as possible and lock back down.
