Also I note (having read it properly!) that your tonearm isn't reaching the record surface?? 1st question - does it have the original cartridge? What is it? I rather like the 3000 and I think I might still have one in one of the ancient (40s) players I converted from 78 only (if I haven't sold it). If you don't get a more helpful response I shall search it out and see if I can determine what controls the set down height. I assume you have tried the obvious - defeating the hardened old grease that is the curse of all old Garrard changers? If not - turn a hair dryer on the tonearm mechanics for a minute or two to soften that old gunk and see if it helps
Thank you for your interest. Yes, "odd" is puting it mildly. Garrard made this changer specifically for the North American version of this model. In fact, Pye built the electronics which are, again, uinique to this model. It has been such a nightmare to restore, involving three very experienced techicians who were left scratching their heads, that I am reluctant to adjust anything without hearing from someone experienced in this specific tonearm.
