 :wave: Hello, I have worked on electrical projects in the past, so I'm confident that I can tackle this slot machine restoration. This forum is great for information on this 1090.


I have a lot of patients, time is on my side, and my workshop is full of tools to work on this properly. I


This 1090 has some issues and I decided to get some manuals to repair it, and this site is great for research.

The seller stated that everything works, the only issue is that the reels don don't align up properly for payout. I'm not concerned, since I'm going to restore the 1090.


The good part is the excellent quality of the 1090.  :yes:

The strip alinenent could be that the strips have moved on the reel tins, since they are just held in place by crimping the edges of the tins. The other possibility is that the screws holding the tins to the hub, or the indexing can to the hub are loose. There are steel roller bushings that are on the kick and stopping level for each reel. Make sure they are there. Welcome to New Life Games.  :wave:  Beware.. One slot machine tends to lead to 2-3 or more.  There like the movie gremlins they tend to multiply..

Overall, I don't think it's got to many problems. I think if I clean, and service the slot machine it will come to life. Since it's built in America, it should be a good machine.


I'm assuming that the plate with the model and serial number and the year it was made.

Ok.. I think the wires were from a counter, you can just tape them off. As for your wobbling gear, that a unit call the clock. Most do wobble. Now for tag. The too line is tha machine model, and the date the machine was made is is hand stamped in the Black above the word Bally.

I am going to fully restore the slot machine. Reattach the lower part, wire the key switch, and reinstall a light on top.


I have started cleaning the Formica, and repairing as needed.

Not every plug in the machine was used. The wiring was pretty much universal from machine to machine in these. Also some of the plugs and hold are from casino used item. Some machines were modified in there after life's too.
