Question about Audio & Video Receivers
Technics SL-1300MK2 turntable.
The cueing lever does not lift the tone arm. Possible trouble is with the oil damper. Parts seem to be near impossible to find. Can this item be fixed by taking oil damper apart and putting in either new seals or more oil?
what grade of silicone oil would this use and where to find it?

Make a note of the tracking force setting.
Make sure the turntable is level.
Unplug the power to the turntable.
Using the tonearm elevation control, raise the tonearm.
Manually move the tonearm in toward the platter.
Manually rotate the platter ClockWise a few turns to disengage any cueing mechanisms.
Set the Stylus Pressure/Tracking setting to 0.
Disengage the tonearm elevation control. The tonearm will either float or drop. This is why we have no power, just in case it hits the platter.
Adjust the counterweight until the tonearm floats exactly horizontal. Use the flat portion of the tonarm rest as a gauge.
Return the tonearm to its rest.
Dial in the prescribed tracking force on the Stylus Pressure/Tracking control. Play records.
