Does anyone have any experience with one of these machines? I recently acquired one of these and I've been restoring it to functioning condition. So far, everything has been going pretty smooth until I tried to reassemble the delivery gates after cleaning them. I have a service manual and I've followed the directions, but something still doesn't seem right to me. If anyone could offer some guidance or even some pics of what the delivery gates look like when fully assembled, I'd appreciate it.

Post some pictures of what you have & how you’ve reassembled the Vending rack & links so far

Here’s what I have going on. I put the long spacers on pivot pin 1 and 7. The small spacers are on the rest. As for the delivery gates, it seems like some are too long and some are too short to reach the pivot pins on the back side. Odd, because they’re all the same size before I put them in. Pretty frustrating. Hopefully, these 2 pics I took will post. If not, I’ll keep trying.

Only thing that caught my eye was this vending rod looks to be askew, all the others are parallel to each other...is it criss-crossed onto the wrong post?

No, it’s not crisscrossed onto the wrong post. Some of the bars reach the pivot pins in the back perfectly and some don’t reach them at all and are just kind of hanging out there in limbo. I believe that’s what you saw. Are the spacers in the correct position? Long on the ends and short everywhere else? I’ve taken before pics of everything I’ve touched on this machine for reference, but for some idiotic reason, I didn’t take one of this before I started screwing around with it. I’ll get it right eventually.

sounds like you've found your problem then...incorrect reassembly, very easy to do on this rack when you have a jumble of parts in a pile, all rods should land on their respective posts & end up parallel with each other within the vending slot(s) I've owned all models of this machine & I've always cleaned the racks as a whole & only took it apart one section at a time to replace broken or missing links, I have many parts for these machines for the 60/78/124, but not a rack to be found in my storage unit to use as an example...sorry

so in hindsight, should of kept it assembled...I know I've learned my leason in the past.  ( which is why I don't work on my own mechanical/ crank handle change giving coinmechs either)   tounge

If I knew then what I know now, right? It’s been a very valuable lesson learned. I’ll get it right eventually. There are only so many ways to reassemble it. I’ll hit on the correct combination at some point. I appreciate your input even if it didn’t help much this time. On a positive note, at least I know now where I can get parts if I need any. Any suggestions on a source for a replacement door gasket? Mine is useless.
