Default 1970's Pepsi Machine

How do I "hotwire" my Pepsi machine to vend without having the coin machanism? It's a Dixie Narco DC175-5

Brett, why dont you just pick up a used coin changer. On those older models you should find one cheap and then you can set it to free vend. Try the local Pepsi dealer or many cities have companies that repair changers. It would be a lot easier than rewiring the machine.

...and welcome to House Repair Talk.

It should be a piece o' cake, if you can post a schematic.

That old, it probably uses
Relay logic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
so you almost can't burn anything out.
