This thing just keeps getting more and more weird.

Taking Mark's suggestion, I decided to check out the Top Box (haven't removed the Award Glass at this point yet) to check for a Candle Harness and was surprised to find some sort of ancient Progressive System up there.

Guess I'll carefully remove all of that stuff and see if I can spot any signs of a Candle Harness in there somewhere.

See photo of this crazy looking contraption. First time for me anyway, some of you more experienced Techs may recognize it.

I'll also look into seeing if I can't somehow install a more standard S+ Reel Glass Display with the Insert Coin, Denom and Coin Accepted Lights along with the Reel Glass to match.

Stay tuned for more updates.

That might be a Mikon display,

Follow the ribbon cable from the display to the controller.
See if it says CHAMI, CHAMII, LED5 on it.

A ChamII+ is a standalone progressive controller.
A ChamII (non plus) requires a CON2i SuperController to drive it and is part of a linked controller system.
A LED5 is a Link Extension Device that gets plugged into a CON1 linked controller - sometimes you will find both in there.
A ChamI is the standalone version of the LED5 - these are super rare.

I have never seen any of what is in that top box - it looks like a massive power supply.

Holy smokes...I've only seen that huge blue capacitor once before....that thing can zap you like a police stun baton!
That vertical board I believe is a CHAM 1 or CHAM2 progressive unit with the ribbon cable running up and plugging into the back of the display.
I think I have one collecting dust on a shelf...lol
It may be the earliest versions of what a progressive game IGT had back then that was called "Megabucks"?  :scratch-head_3:
