    Default I should have taken a photo...:(

    Alright so I am reassembling my Nishijin Model B. I've got the entire playfield completely restored and an putting the mechanics on the back. I cannot remember how the rails were placed for the tulips. During my restore I've been using a book to guide me through it since it was my frist time. The problem is, there are still some differences between the machines. Rather than 4 rails, mine had two long ones and a bent one. I'm posting some photos here showing the three rails that I have. Can anyone tell me where they go? ESPECIALLY the bent one.

    Can you line up the original staple holes?

    I would suspect the bent one comes off the center feature.

    There are only three, at least I think so. When I was taking it apart I put each step into a plastic bag and labelled.

    Match up the staple holes.

    Move the third piece to spot the arrow points to. (sorry for the crude drawing) The other two seem about right.

    Thanks mxfaiman. I think that is where it is supposed to go. My only concern is that the jackpot mechanism also goes there and it seems like it would be blocked by that bent rail. Does that make sense?

    The jackpot mech sits ontop of everything. None of it contacts these tracks where the balls go. The cover that the mech screws onto has space for all these tracks.

    Last night I placed the tracks where I thought they belonged (i.e., as mxfaiman pointed out). I am not putting the lower mechanisms back onto the machine. Getting close! Hardest part to come is going to be the electrical work.
