Lost the tone arm spring for Pioneer PL-L1000 — help

Post by Gstein43 » 20 Aug 2019 15:48

While I was replacing the tonearm belt the top panel of the TT slightly clipped the stopper part (part # 7.1) of the tonearm and sent the inner spring (part # 7.2) flying in the air. I heard the spring hit the wall in my office and even after an hour of searching I am unable to locate the spring.

What is weird is the stopper hardly moved, but apparently just enough to allow the spring to come loose.

Anyone have a clue on where I can find a replacement spring or know the size of spring?

Lenjack - thanks for the organdonorparts suggestion. Not only did they have a complete tonearm assembly, they are willing to remove just the spring and sell it to me.

Much appreciated!
