I have an origanal tonearm from an EB103 and 240volt motor are they worth selling on EBAY? These are extra parts since I upgraded the table.

Not sure what the motor is worth, but the arm can usually bring 75 dollars +/-.

I was wondering

Was it very hard to install the new arm? I have an EB101 and am considering installing a version of the rega arm, which is a little longer than the stock AR arm.

I read one post where it was stated that it was very difficult to install another arm, but I suppose that reflects somewhat on the ability of the person doing the modification.

I was wondering how your arm replacement went.

Thanks.

NO it wasn't. Just took a little modification and some thinking. I had to open up the exsting hole a bit and make it look pretty. I can take pictures of it at a later date, my buddy has it to fit a new cartridges on it.......

Did you have to raise the mounting point on your table? I have an EB-101, and I had to fabricate a mount that raised the RB-250 about half an inch or a little better.

I used a small slab of Cocobolo for the armboard, and so far it's surpassed my expectations!
