When adjusting the springs on my TD 160 MK IV for the first time and taking away the platter I discovered that the pivot of the motor seems to be slightly bent.
When rotating (with or without belt) I observe a very small horizontal (left-right / back-forth) movement of the pulley. I took off the pulley, looked at the pivot alone and the jitter is still there...
So my first question is:
Can this be adjusted by any means or do I have to look for a new motor ?
Or can the spindle alone be replaced ? I didn't dare to disassemble the motor yet...
And if I have to get a new motor, is there a place to look for one ? Or would that be to look for a whole TT on Ebay ?
The second question is:
I have a slight slow tumble on my platter too. I rotated the outter platter all the way round to look for the best spot and have improved the tumble, but could not fully eliminate it.
Well, that wasn't a question - true - but here it is:
Could that be linked to the jittering pulley ?
The frequency of the platters tumble is way lower than that of the pulleys jitter, but since I guess the belt swallows a lot of the jitter on it's way ot the inner platter I was wondering if that might be connected ?
Well, that's enough for now I guess.
Thanks for listening - any help is surely appreciated !
