To replace a drive belt.
Before starting unplug from mains power source.
1, Remove the rubber platter mat to expose the platter.
2. Put your thumb and forefinger through the two round holes and lift the platter off. You may need to give the centre spindle a light tap (whilst applying upward pressure) with a screwdriver handle or some similar tool that will not leave any marks or damage.
3. Remove the old belt and wipe the platter pulley and motor pulley with an alcohol swab to remove any old belt residue.
4. Place the new belt around the platter pulley making sure t is sitting flat without any twists.
5. Flip platter over the right way up. There are1or 2 larger rectangle shaped cut outs in the platter.
6. Through the cut out pinch up the belt and slip a finger or belt hook between the platter pulley and the belt gripping the belt ready to fit over the motor pulley.

how to replace the speed pitch


Take off the platter by pulling up on the 2 holes under the slip matts. Flip it over. Twist off the feet. Take out about a thousand screws. And the black ruberish section should come right off. There are 2 screws that hold the pitch in place. Unplug it! plug the new one in! It real simple. If its an old 1200 and you can solder....Replace the RCA jacks as they to wear out. Good luck! And if you need me just message me!.
