Question about Audio Shelf Systems
Somewhere throughout the years I've inherited a Pioneer PL120-II turntable. Recently I thought I'd get it working to use as a backup for my Technics SLD-2. The Pioneer wouldn't work due to a missing drive belt. I ordered one on-line and for the PL120-II it specified a 23 1/2" belt. When I went to replace it, the belt seems much too big. There is an active drive shaft around which the belt goes (I thought) and a passive idler spindle that the platter slips down onto. My thought now is that there's some kind of rubber pulley assembly that affixes to the drive shaft that I'm missing. (There's a sticky, melted-rubber-like substance all around the drive shaft.) Can anybody shed some light on this?
Clean the spindle with alcohol and put a single drop of thin oil at the bottom of it
the sticky stuff is the rubber corroding
if the belt is not too stretched , boil it in water with some vinegar for a couple of minutes , if its too bad then replace it

I've got one and it doesn't have anything on the spinning bit, it's just metal. The band seems to fit okay, but the speed's all wrong. Don't know what the problem is. Any ideas?
