1219 Dearing Ring

Post by r.armoneit » 10 Mar 2019 16:06

Hi,
Late 2017 on a Dual 1219 first version, I replaced the Dearing Ring. The switch was smooth from single to multi. Prior to the Dearing Ring replacement I did most other check, clean or repair. The most difficult part was the horizontal test for the tonearm to return from end of record to return post! This led to moving the single /multi switch quite often. I broke the eccentric tip on the Linking Lever (216-888) trying to get in the right position, I replaced with new lever. Now I believe that the metal ears on the new Dearing Ring has worked it's way out of the plastic Helical Switch or Locating Lever (217-601). I
feel I'm fighting a loosing battle,but the white flag is not waving yet! I believe all the prerequisites were as close as possible without the proper tools to perform the Horizontal tone arm test! This was my first really big tear down of TT.
I'm about to put the 1219 into a jig and start a new tear down and any suggestions would really be appreciated.
Bob

Hi Bob Not sure if you're talking about the Dearing ring (the helical switch with the little ears) or the single/multi lift ring at the bottom which helps with detent in either single or multi positions. Glad it's working.
