  1. Here's pics of the original Can Stop Shim, after it was modified, and the new motor positioning to make it work. https://imgur.com/a/C5XUrP6
  2. Well I figured it out. My 501R did indeed have wide rotors installed. The wide rotors made in impossible to vend correctly. The only possible solution according to Dixie Narco Technical Bulletin 438 was to replace the wide rotors with the narrow rotors. https://www.dsvendinginc.com/p-1853-d80120115021-dn-rotor-old-style-motor-single-column-3-deep.aspx At $44.95 a piece x 5 rotors this would add up to $224.75 plus around $50.00 shipping from D & S vending. This was not going to be my first option by a long shot because my intentions for this machine is to give my 12 year old daugh
  3. This is with the can stop shim in the on the right side? Is this a wide rotor like I assumed or am I wrong?
  4. Allright I have an update. I figured out how to get the wide columns to work with cans at triple depth by adding two can retainers to each oscillator and adding two ribbed shims to the left and right side of each wide column. The narrow columns I have not been so lucky. Being as it is a 501r it was equipped with 1 bottle shims per narrow column. I ordered 1 can stop shim for each column and replaced the bottle Shim on the right side of each column. I am now vending 0,1,2. I think this is because the 501r comes equipped with wide rotors instead of the narrow ones.
  5. Angry Chris, thank you. That's must ha E taken you a while to type all of that just to help me out. I appreciate it. I'll have a look tomorrow to better see what I'm dealing with.
  6. Yes it is a 501R which would be the quivalemt to a 501T because it has 3 wide columns and 5 narrow ones.
  7. Thanks for the quick replies. I officially am an idiot because I was just looking through the pictures I took of the tag on the machine and it is a 501R. I'm guessing the reason why I remember it as being a 501T is because I read a while ago that the 501R is essentially a 501T with a rounded front. I don't t know if it effects the shimming/cams.
  8. Hi I recently purchased a Dixie Narco 501t for $100 of Facebook marketplace. I purchased it so my 12 year old daughter can get a start on learning responsibility by keeping track of inventory, etc. It will be located at a business next door to our house. I figured it would be a good learning experience for her. Little did I know it would be a learning experience for me as well. I would like it to run on triple depth so she doesn't have to constantly monitor and refill it. It appears it is set up for single depth only in the double columns because it has a blue cam instead of the green c
