Hey all. After picking up a Bally Freedom about 6 months ago, I've finally gotten around to shopping it out. I'm down to the bottom board and I noticed that that the coin unit seems to have a mis-adjusted 4th player switch (according to Clay's guide). I was hoping that I could use the coin unit on my Old Chicago or Flip Flop as a guide for repositioning it, but they have a different version of the coin unit and I can't find any pics online of this specific coin unit either. I've attached some pics below of my coin unit, if anyone knows the correct position or has any pics of the correct position it would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hi CookyJar, Did you ever figure this out? I too am repairing a freedom pinball machine and I have the same issue with the coin unit. Did you happen to snap a pic of the correctly adjusted coin unit, if so could you provide it here?

It looks like I was able to fix it, I found this diagram so if future people stumble upon this post they will know how to fix it . http://www.pinrepair.com/em/blystep2b.jpg (correct position) . http://www.pinrepair.com/em/blystep2.jpg (incorrect position)
