help with shims dixie narco 501e

I think this one in the pic below is for bottles? Disregard the cans in the pic. I believe that's the bottle shim because is vends 2 cans on the second attempt with the cams correct and the rod and spring in the correct position.
and I think this one below is for cans? am I correct?

The bottom picture appears to be for cans, yes. But the top picture is rather incomplete as far as showing the actual cam. Could you take the soda out and take a picture of the whole row and cam when the row is empty?
Yes I will pull the product tomorrow and post pic

The red cam is set for 20 oz bottles and the left metal shim and your plastic shim are 20 oz shims.
As far as the water, what 16.9 oz bottle are you trying to vend?

I was in a hurry so I sped read the post so I might have missed something. I think your trying to vend 16.9oz water. The shimming is the same for cans just set the back spacer. If it is a 3 deep machine you may or may not be able to vend 2 deep water (depends on manufacturer. ALSO you can only vend bottles ridgid enough to vend. I.E Ozarka has 16.9oz water bottle sold at Sam's and Costco that says "for vending" they will not work! They will work but can only stack 10 high but can still jam!Most bottles are to flimsey to vend they will not hold the weight beeing stacked without smashing bottle and jamming. Ozarka does make water bottle that is for "Vending" which has ridges and thick enough to vend we have been using them for 4 years without problems. I can only find them through vend broker (Vistar). Also unless the machine is also a 20oz bottle machine you can only vend 16.9oz bottles out of the middle single columns the vend chute is to small so if the bottle doesn't slide straight out it will get caught sideways and jam the machine. Just another thought.

You must have something mechanical wrong in there. Bent sidewall, twisted cups. But double check these settings to be sure.

Almost all 20oz bottles are designed to vend its the 16.9oz bottles that are not always vendable.Just a thought.
Just to throw my two cents in, I vend 20 oz. Poland out of one of these machines. I don't know the cam setting off the top of my head, but i load them two deep and stack 'em to the top. never a problem
