Hi all,
I think I need to rotate this around so it lines up with novelty, but how do you move it? I unscrewed it thinking it would move freely. Nope.

It has been in replay mode for so long that it is just frozen/stuck. Had a similar problem with my gulfstream. You just need to keep working it back and forth. Doing it with your fingers will not work. You have to get a tool in there to rotate it. Like an open pair of needle nose or plyers. With the machine off.

So that top board is supposed to rotate? Ok...

No, just that little copper bridge in the middle.

I used a flat screwdriver by placing it in the slot located right in the middle.

Thanks, that makes sense. I’ll try today

Oh, that was easy. Thanks for telling me how. It was not stuck, I just didn't know how to move it properly. I learned something new today.

Hooray for new knowledge! It’s an inelegant mechanism. I look forward to trying the screwdriver method next time I do this. I always turned it with my bare fingers, which hurt like hell.

Second the flat blade screwdriver. I set my Klondike on Novelty just to hear the clicks of the 10,000 score reel (rarely hear them otherwise).
