Yes I re-dampened the tonearm lift with 500.000 Silicone no problem, but getting tonearm back in place is proving to be a mess. I can get the stems through, but not the lift piece (59) and spring (61). Can't see those parts inside the operating curve and the alignment is not possible, trying not to break the lift piece. Any idea on aligning the internal parts right. I' m pretty close,the tonearm is a 1/2" from setting in place.
Thanks,
Phil

Hi Phil,
Have a look at my 1249 restoration from Pic DSC00015 onwards on my website. Also read the tonearm removal procedure on page 7 in the service manual for guidance.
Regards,

OK. It's a head-start anyway.
Thanks,

I really shouldn't be doing something like this. I'm not qualified, just lucky to get it back together and running properly. Got a 1/4" gain in tonearm lift. I got some tweaking to do to the top of the lift pin(51) and guide (46) e-clip's. Lucky to be back up and running.
Thanks Dualcan,
Phil
