Re: Technics Sl 1700 MKii arm lift not working

Hey guys , need your help.
I bought a Technics SL-1700 MKII out of the trunk of a car (literally), for a $100.
He swore it worked but it did not. Yes, I feel a little sheepish.
The arm lift does not work. The small arm belt seems recent and the tonearm does return but without lifting. Any leads ?

Is the lifter motor running? If yes, the lifter part may be gunked by leaking silicon.
