Replacement parts and service work

The Dual CS522 came into the shop needing repair.
I am looking for replacement Stylus, for this unit, any help out there?

The stylus for the original

The stylus for the original Ortofon ULM55E cartridge that mounts with one screw is the DN155E. It is still available online from several dealers. Google... The DN150E or DN165E styli will also fit the body if you want to upgrade or downgrade. There is also a plastic cartridge mount available to enable mounting any standard 1/2" mount cartridge.
