I've been sent a LW phono with a host of small problems. This is a Vertical only machine that according to the lit. should use a sapphire ball. The governor springs were wrong. I've got two with Columbia weights that are pretty close. Had to make a lower bearing for the governor. It's tad sloppy but rotational speed seems fairly consistent until the record slows half way into the side. I suspect the spring is the wrong size (too long and maybe too thick). Soooo, what size should the spring be? There is a dish shaped washer on the winding gear side of the spring. Should the upward curve of the dish be towards the spring or towards the winding gear? Should the spring be exposed on its other end or was there another dish or flat disk there? Anybody know? And does anyone know the actual length, width, thickness of the gov. springs?
Thanks, Ron L
