The CT-F1250 I picked up on ebay last fall (my first piece in what will someday be a complete Pioneer system), was supposed to be outfitted with new rubber by the seller, but it was not. He sent me the standard set of belts and being pretty handy, I had no trouble (and rather enjoyed) doing the work myself, especially with YouTube's guidance. I even duplicated the late Mr. Possche's procedures for refurbishing the clutches. It works just fine. Should I go to the next level and start replacing electronics, like some of the caps and perhaps some transistors? I understand it's better to do this kind of work on amplifiers before parts go bad and take other down with them, but does that apply here? Thanks for looking. Mike.
