    Anyone work on one of these? I have one for repair right now, pretty neat piece of gear. Haven't tested it yet, I wonder what the common problems are. The owner said the arm moves erratically.

    Nice TT. The wide tonearm transport belt needs cleaning and probably retightening. The 3 small servo motor belts need to be replaced.

    Opto interrupters have been issues in the past.

    I think the opto interruptors work fine in mine, since it goes to the correct size record and auto return functions. It definitely needs new belts though, and a good cleaning. Any ideas what size the three on the pulleys are?
