Cont from Fairchild 440 Turntable Part 1 & 2 / 3
So I was left with a few problems that need fixing.
- Tonearm rewire
- Get new bearing ( 3/8 inch … NOT 1/4 )
- Adjust height of TT Platter
- Motor not spinning up quickly
I wish I had video’d this, but it was just too complicated to get it set up. I took it apart, threatened in new wire ( which was easier than expected ).
Major challenge here was getting the bottom brown disk off. At first I tried bending back the pins, but they crshed or snapped. So I used a spanner and rotated the disk… it then slipped off easily.
Stopping here for a few days while I sort out next steps.
