I recently bought a Bally Hoo that had been standing in a barn for quite a while it seems.
I'm trying to restore it to functional state.
The match unit seems to have been used as spare parts provider for other pins.

Can someone please provide a decent picture of the upper side of the match unit so that I can grasp what parts I'm missing? The parts catalog I'm seeing isn't that helpfull..

your match units is complete- see mine for comparison. In mine, there is a spring that was too long - but otherwise they look exactly the same.

This is a rotary unit, that only goes one direction - 00-10-20-30-40-50-60-70-80-90-00-...
Thus, if it moves and does so by one tooth per coul pull, you will be fine. You might want to clean the unit from rust though and particularly the plunger.

Have fun with your machine! Let me know, once it will be running again!

Great, thanks! I'm missing the end-of-stroke switch, or at least, a piece of the switch has broken of, and even the piece of the metal that is supposed to trigger the end of stroke switch, but that doesn't seem to bother much..
Thanks again!
