Hey all,

Something that I have never come across before, but are you able to change mech from sr5 to a cash flow 126?

Basically I have an updated 126 and wanted to swap out the sr5 inside that only takes old pound coins. The problem is, the loom connects to the VEND BUS on the mpu5 board instead of MECH on the mpu5 board and the current loom doesn't connect to the 126. I have changed looms but get 'check software' error on start up... however, if I reconnect the plug back into VEND BUS but not in the mech I get 'coin mech missing'. Is there a way to switch? Or not?

Machine info: barcrest mpu5 Cock a doodle dough without note acceptor

Thanks

Depends on the mountings and if you need to use ccTalk / Serial connections, but if plain Parallel based connection, you should be able to.

I do have a Red Show Us The Mummy, which was a complete bastard to sort for the new £ (Worked out I had to use the SR5i variant of the mech, as some machines will not properly see the new coins, though not all MPU5's are affected in this way), but finally managed to sort it with Steve Hunley's help at Swallow Amusements.

Thanks for that,

I have a feeling it requires CCTalk for it due to the looms already in. I have a feeling that I would just need to update the SR5 for it to work I guess.

Thanks again

Contact Steve in my earlier link, and he should be able to advise accordingly.
