    I have a Baywatch I'd like to put a bill acceptor in. Mars 2411 does not fit. The top of the hole for the bill acceptor is about 8" from the bottom of the door as pictured. Anyone know which DBA's work with this configuration? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Lloyd, thanks but that won't work. That unit is about 11", a 2411 turned upside down is about 9" and that won't fit. I need something no more than 8" total height to work with this coin door.

    Stackerless might be your only option then.

    Or change to a different door.

    I've never used a stackerless. I'm guessing they have no bill box and the bills would just fall into the coin tray along with quarters?

    If you leave the top off of the cash box, yes.

    Thanks Lloyd. I'll probably go that route but I'm guessing stackerless wasn't available yet when Sega and Data East built these machines so there must have been some other bill acceptor at the time that would bolt right in. I asked Chas at Stern but he didn't have any recommendations. If anyone else has info on this I'd appreciate it.

    MARS (MEI) was already making a VFM series stackerless by the time Baywatch was made.

    If anyone has a Mars VFM for sale let me know. Thanks.

    I should point out they are good for ones only, aren't able to be updated. Ebay usually has some, buy them cheap, not worth much.

    Pyramid makes a nice stackerless that takes $1's, $5's, $10's, & $20's.
