Bolts are held in place by 2 wingnuts.
The 3 contacts where the door goes aren't essential to get the machine going, but right now, I cant remember what they do...Need to go open the Ricochet to find out
  Yeah but my lock bar doesn't have the bolts?  Is there a plate with bolts welded or how are they held to the wood?

Ok.. so you don't have 2 holes through the lock down for the bolts to go through?

I might have a spare here.
Some have a squared  metal U shaped strip than runs the length of the lock down and the bolts are contained between timber and metal.
I found an old Williams bar here today in the shed which probably came off CASINO... pretty sure it has the same mech on it.
Will check tomorrow... you never know, it may fit???

That's an interesting find. This game was more than likely a private import at some stage ? What are the coin mechs denomination ?

Amazing condition. You have unearthed some real finds lately  ^^^

Very nice machine that. Great back glass too, well done in securing it!
