That is an ancient coin mech. What do you need it for?

Your repair guy isn't such a smart guy. Any of the Mars 5000 series mechs were not great designs and no parts are available for them any longer, nor for any other multiprice mechs like it either. However, I would recommend you either junk the machine (it's very heavy so it brings a pretty penny at a scrap yard) or you can upgrade the machine to an aftermarket logic board kit which I think I still have. Even if you upgrade it you will still be at the mercy of the weak motor switches on every motor in the machine. These machines are from the 80's and it's time to step into reality and use a late model machine. PM me if you need a new mech only (which would be a Coinco) meaning the machine will still only take coins, or if you want to upgrade it so it can take bills and coins.
