    check to see if the right side pin which holds the accumulater in place is not rubbing against the arm next to it on the right.

    Quick update.

    I went ahead and took out the key arms, drawer assembly along with that lower cam line. To get that cam line out I had to drive out all the locator pins and pull out the shaft. I got the key arms cleaned up, made some new key checks and installed them. Tested the machine and it worked great. Next I installed the drawer assembly and still the machine worked as it should. Then I reinstalled the cam line and all the links that interface with the special key arms, printer and adder. Went to test it out and it worked exactly as it did before I took it all apart. At the point I now know what the main culprit is. I ended up removing the links that attached to the hotel and barn key arms and now the machine doesn’t get stuck with those keys. Funny enough, now the .45 and .15 keys just barely get stuck but if I put a flat head between the neckties for those keys and rotate, the key releases. I guess this means that I need to shave those down a tiny bit?

    I appreciate everyone’s help, I have learned a lot on how these machines work with this project. Now I just need to finish the indicators and final polishing and I can get it put back together. Then on to the next machine!!
