You can't use O-rings for these New Orthophonic idlers.  Must order a replacement (recap).

Wow, that was an easy solution.  I'll have to remember that in case I come across an RCA changer with the same issue.

The old saying is a picture is worth a thousand words.  Post us lots of pictures of this console beast.

Good you found out where the extra spring goes.  For some reason they tend to work much better with all their springs in place....lol.

Now, enjoy the music.

5
Also check the motorboard below the platter to see if this spring might go there somewhere.  Seems like there is one short spring there too.....

Those little short springs like this always go up in the tonearm area somewhere (circled in picture....)

Look for holes with no spring in the hole......

I'm having a  hard time finding matches for the electrolytics for  C2 and C3. I use just radio's .
C2 is a 50mfd. 6-volt capacitor.  Replace that one with a 47mfd. 50-volt capacitor.  It will be a tiny electrolytic.

C3 is the crossover capacitor between the tweeters and the woofer, an 8mfd. non-polarized electrolytic capacitor.  You may not need to replace that crossover.  Never use a polarized electrolytic (with a + and a -) for that capacitor.

Wax cap replacements-- You need the following in 630-volts.  I always replace all wax caps with 630 volts regardless of their voltage ratings.

1--   .0022

1-    .0056

1-    .015

4-    .047

1-    .0015

Here is the photofact page that shows the caps.  Only the fixed capacitors with a decimal need replaced.... with 630-volt caps.

This is a really good idea someone thought of. Every thing I need in one kit. I wonder if they do this for every model?

I can buy all the capacitors you need for this amp, electrolytics included, for less than $15.  You won't need all those resistors and picofared
caps.

The cabinet design and grill cloth have a Bell & Howell/Columbia Masterwork look.  I wonder if B&H may have built this cabinet for Fisher.

Top should be mahogany veneer like the rest of the cabinet.

The McIntosh crowd might consider our consoles as junk.  Certainly guys that spend $500 on a patch cord would...........
