    Default Latest acquisitions...and request for help

    Recently picked up a couple of machines in a 2fer deal that I couldn't refuse.

    Both machines are very different from any of the other units I have...

    Front



    Back of front...



    While I have a Sanyo brand machine, it is nothing like this one...

    Number 2



    And reverse...



    Never heard of this brand, but the center attraction is cool

    Looks like someone amateurishly tacked a Nishijin ball supply onto it...

    On the Sanyo, there is a part on the back that seems to be missing some linkage...



    Under the cover is a roughly L-shaped swinging piece that looks like a deflector, or...???

    And on the front, it appears the ball dump slider handle thingy is missing something...???

    On the Sanyo, there aren't any bells, and there does not appear to be any place to attach them. Where bells would seem to go, there are metal brackets that the balls don't really hit. Can this be correct?

    The Sanyo back looks very similar to the Kyogoku. See thread lower in this forum labeled Kyogoku

    Undoubtedly you are correct. I can even see the bells through the plastic on your beautiful restoration. Looks like Sanyo changed some stuff around and/or I am also missing some more pieces. Looks like the linkage in question is a shooter disabler in the event of balls backing up...

    Have you removed the back cover? Any posts to mount bells? Can always make a post. Correct on the shooter disabler. Maybe the early Sanyo's did not use them?

    I have had the back off and there are metal brackets, roughly L-shaped that mount where the bells "should" be. The balls don't really hit the brackets. By all appearances, they are factory original. The cover has cutouts where a round bell would fit perfectly. There is a mounting point--the brackets mount with one screw each. I just need to acquire some king of bells that will fit. I can only guess they wanted the machine to be quiet, as odd as that sounds...

    Try a bicycle bell, close to the same size.
