This is my first time posting here so I would like to thank everyone for the amazing informations I have found on this site.
Recently I decided to bring my father's stereo, a Grundig Studio 80, to its former glory.
The system works fine but the turntable, a Dual 1224, has seen better days and I have some question to get the best results out of the servicing.
Like in many others cases, the automatic system doesn't work since the pimple is gone to pieces.
I know that a nice kit is sold from one of the users but being in America is quite distant.
Is this a good alternative?
I have found the Shell Gadus but I am not sure what oil to use since "sewing machine oil" is pretty general and I have read that differet grades exist. Any specific product available in Europe? I could easily get this but I'm not sure if it's correct:
The Dual CDS 660 cartridge and stylus are 40 years old and I am also thinking about changing them with a new unit. Is a new 660 good or can I improve by getting another cartridge?
The tonearm damper looks fine but has clearly lost some oil, is service required?
Thanks again to everyone
