how to remove upper bushing from Garrard 401 idler wheel

Post by Heifetz » 24 Jun 2019 15:02

Hello,
Advice would be most welcome.
I bought a new Audiosilent idler wheel with two brass bushing. Installing the idler wheel is quite straightforward but I would like to change the brass upper bushing (may be the lower bushing at later date). The original bushing seems to be really jammed. Does anyone have a good idea how to remove the original bushing?
Thanks so much for any advice.

Hello Heifetz,
I have an Audiosilente idler wheel as a spare for a 401. The instructions strongly suggest fitting the idler wheel first. If there is any noise then try replacing the upper bushing first.
They say replacing the lower bushing takes a lot of work to align and I think that one should be left to someone with experience.
Good luck.
