    Try this: Remove the left coin acceptor. Remove the coin micro switch from that side and reinstall it so that the trip wire is positioned just below the coin reject bar at the top of the removed coin acceptor’s bracket. I think you may be able to reuse an existing hole and you will just have to drill one additional hole. You can reuse the original #4 bolts from the coin switch. Now you will be able to use the coin reject button as a free credit button. The good thing is that this method is reversable and no cosmetic damage is done to the front of the machine. I hope I understood your question, if I didn’t just ignore me. If you need a picture let me know and I’ll upload one.

    To use the coin reject button as a free play button. Try this: Remove the left (My choice) coin acceptor. Remove the coin micro switch from that side and reinstall it so that the trip wire is positioned just below the coin reject bar at the top of the removed coin acceptor's bracket. You should be able to reuse an existing hole and you will just have to drill one additional hole. You can reuse the original #4/40 bolts from the coin switch but you will have to tap the holes with a 4/40 SAE tap (The original 4/40 X 5/8" are not long enough to place nuts on them and a 4/40 x 1" bolts are generally not available at the local hardware store.) Install the bolt in the top hole first and tighten it in the desired position. Use a 3/32" drill bit and drill the second hole using the lower hole in the micro switch as a guide. Make sure you test the switch's operation before you drill the second hole! Remove the switch and tap the second hole. Reinstall the micro switch placing the top bolt in first but don't tighten it yet. Use an awl or similar sharp tool and push it through the lower hole to align it. Tighten the top bolt and then install the lower bolt. Now you will be able to use the coin reject button as a free credit button.
    The good thing is that this method is reversible and no cosmetic damage is done to the front of the machine. Good luck.

    That's a picture of the switch installed on a Mata Hari. There was an existing hole that was conveniently located. I'll check an EBD tomorrow to make sure it has a similarly located hole. I've also done this on a Flash Gordon and EBD was made only 2 months after.
