Hi Ken. Yes the schematic sheet shows the EV 26s. Not sure what the replacement part is. I got it from V-M Audio enthusiasts.

I am looking for a preamp to connect to the tape in RCA jacks so my phone/ipod will be as loud as the record changer.

Also going to add binding posts and a switch to use external speakers, instead of the old 4 prong plugs as installed.

thank you
BruceF

Thanks for the links to cleaning up the record changer. Tore into it this morning and cleaned and relubed the mechanism. It now works as it should. Time to finish this machine up.

Thank you
BruceF

Have been busy with some other things lately(cataract surgery), but will be back to this soon.
Last time I used the record changer, it was dropping the stack, only 3 or 4 45s, It sounds like maybe the parts in the spindle need a little more cleaning.

hope all had a good Thanksgiving!

Yeah, a VM changer should be pretty silent, so it may need more lubrication. Happy holidays, Bruce :D
