    fill the back top hopper.. place a hand full or two in the front upper tray and give it a whirl

    hope that makes sense

    post a fw pics of your machine
    Here are a few pics. Once again game works perfect......Except balls are not ejected on a win? It seems like user error/reset button?? My Sankyo is old school no bells and whistles like this. Any help appreciated. The #1 light on back of machine is lit which is the empty ball tray maybe?? Thanks to all. Jeff

    I’d remove the payout motor mechanism on the rear (right side); check for blockages. This machine has a payout “gear” that can get blocked easily with a rusty ball, or random obstruction. The payout motor design on these seems weaker and less reliable in general than other models.
