    Default Old Ginza - Nagoya Maruani Machine

    Have an old machine from my grandmothers house that she got from a relative way back when. Played with it since I was a kid (now 53). Donít really know a thing about the age/history off the machine but would kind of Like to get it working again. The balls get hung up in the guts (I assume all the tensioning and springs are out of alignment). It is all manual, no electronics. I think I am attaching pictures of the front and back. Any advise out there? Thanks.A64DCBEA-4503-4635-83E0-64972DABF2B5.jpegD449B8D3-58CA-4504-892F-89D4D20277F5.jpeg

    It looks complete. I see no obvious areas of concern. The machine is from the '50s. I am sure it will work again, I have a few machine just like or similar. Try to see where the ball in back gets stuck, I'm sure we can figure it out!

    Cool machine; Iíve got a 1957 Misono Deluxe with the same rear mechanics.

    From your picture thereís no balls in the ramp.

    Canít be too hard to fix because these are built like a tank with metal mechanics and pretty simple.

    PM - Back.jpgPM - center.jpgPM - Bells.jpgThanks for the comments.... there were no balls loaded. Although I need to get more as many have been lost over the years.

    The front originally had old paint on it which I stripped down to the wood. The gut appear to be in good shape except some of the plastic being brittle. I has not had much use since I was a kid.

    I found a video on line showing the how everything fits together and works. That was really helpful.

    Balls were getting stuck by the left bell. The bell bracket was interfering with the arm that drops with the ball. I took the bell of and re-bent the bracket and fixed that problem. Unfortunately I took off the right bell and am having trouble getting it to fit without interfering with the same arm and still fitting in the cutout for the bell.

    The other issue is around the center wheel. The balls get released from above, come down the ramp. They have too much momentum and the circled stopper goes to high an balls slide under it. I cannot seem to bend (don't want to bend it too much) the right way to fix the problem. My though it to put a nail above it to prevent the stopper from going to high.
