    Pardon my ignorance on proper terms etc. I have been having trouble with my onkyo t4040 tuner the range available is ever changing. I opened her up and the gear that connects the pulley wheel to the tuninh device is slipping. Sometimes it catches sometimes it does not. Upward pressure on the pulley wheel solves the problem. What is the permanent solution to fixing this problem. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to AK!
    That is called the 'tuning capacitor'

    Do you see that screw on the pulley? give that a little turn with a screw driver.

    Thanks Binkman! While messing with the screw figured out the metal stem of the plastic wheel had slipped way out of place, wheel needs to be flush with the tuning capacitor. All good now! Many, Many thanks. Love everything about this old tuner.
