With the power supply attached to the mounting bracket, I made a test-fit in the case opening. After aligning the power supply assembly, I made measurements for cutting out side-tabs to mount the bracket to the case, and a hole in the "Z" fold at the back of the bracket for the assembly rod (the rod that ties the machine together from top to bottom) to fit through.
This photo displays the side-tab cutouts on the mounting bracket and the holes in the case where it will be bolted. The tube is a piece of tin cut to length and rolled into shape. It will fit over the assembly rod base to provide support for the power supply assembly.

Front view of the case after attaching the power supply assembly. You can see how the tube is providing support for the power supply assembly. If you look closely, you can see the "Z" fold in the bottom of the bracket, just above the support tube
Top view of the case after attaching the power supply assembly. There is just enough room in the front of the case for the coin mechanism and drop tube. More on that later...
Top view of the "Globe" and its base. This is where the power needs to get to.
I removed the globe from its base and measured for a cutout based upon the size of the largest power connector, the one for the motherboard.
I used my Dremel to make the cutouts for the power cables.
The coin mechanism and the drop tube and cover are installed before the Globe and base go on.
Next, the power cables are fed through the cutout.
