Dual 1219 - we are almost there!
The START is not perfect, jet
installed a new Steuerpimpel
put sandpaper (to increase friction)
clean the old grease a little
what else can I do?

Seeing your YouTube movie from underneath, it looks like the steuerpimpel is moving much too much. Too soft.
The original pimpel remains steady during the cycle and this would explain the hesitation of the tonearm to move towards the record.
I would try one of Don's (mrow2) pimpels. PM him or go to e-bay where he sells them. I'm using them.
Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Hugh.

I have one from mrow2 and it works like the original. That one in the video looks like it's about to pop off. Get your money back.

Where did you get that pimpel from so that we know not to purchase it?
