1 of a Kind Coin Mechanism

My grandparents have this game thing in their garage but it needs a new coin mechanism or a correct connection to it. Usually, you add the coin and it'll register in the system, but now it doesn't sense the coin. So it's practically unplayable. I wanted to know if anyone was familiar with the coin mechanism used in a machine like this and where I can buy a replacement. Also, the back panel has 2 round key locks, but my grandparents seemed to have replaced them. If you know how I can get around that as well, I'd appreciate it!

with the key locks you may have to drill through the center with a drill bit about 5/16 this will dill out tumbler and the locking Tung at back of lock will drop off
