Default Re: Garrard RC 90

I have one of these as an ongoing project. The cam will freeze in place causing nothing to move. The RC 90 also has three idler or drive wheels[!], one of which runs off the pulley and is dedicated only to advancing the changer mechanism. If it goes hard or otherwise slips it simply doesn't drive the changer part and everything grinds to a halt, even if the cam and other bits have been cleaned and lubricated. I'm going get all three wheels renewed at some point and carry on with this. I've rehabilitated an RC 80, RC 88, RC 98 and A70 and the RC 90 is the worst of the lot so far. It is interesting because it has a pitch control similar to the 301.
