Have also given the deck the heat treatment both sides as I have removed the deck from the radiogram - the aluminium drive wheel does seem as if it could be a little bit easier to rotate . would a spot of WD40 or machine oil of some sort Help to free up any stiff components? Will await your reply before proceeding further. Thanks for your Help so far - now for the next stage.
The only reliable remedy is to do a complete teardown, cleaning, and re-lubing.
This involves hours of work, and a proper knowledge of the mechanicals and how they all work.
Anything less is merely wasting time and results in poor performance.
They ALL need the involvement after decades of neglect.
