I wish I could help you, but the only major disassemble that I did with my Philco M-22 changer was to remove the tone arm for repair. On and off, it took me no less than 3 days before I actually got the tone arm set correctly, and aligned with the trip mechanism as well. In fact, I even had to make up a jig during that process. As for lubricating the linkages and such, what I did was to simply remove the old grease with a hobby brush dipped in rubbing alcohol. Afterwards, I would dip the same hobby brush into Phonolube, and apply the Phonolube to the exact locations that required lubrication.

Personally, I would have never attempted to disassemble the entire changer. As simple as this particular changer may appear, it actually is quite mechanically involved as everything must be positioned and aligned perfectly to the tee. In fact, I'm not aware of anyone to this day who has ever successfully tore this particular changer completely down, and got the changer working right afterwards.

This is how the two springs should be for a Philco M-22. For future reference

Paul, good luck! It'll take a good deal of patience, time and perseverance. If things don't go well with it one day, just save the job for another day.

Believe it or not, I got this player to work as advertised.
The trip finger adjustment was a nightmare. But the Philco service manual was the golden ticket.
The Sam’s for this player was about useless. Patience and knowing when adjusting is done are key. Fiddling with this will only bring more frustration.

That's great to hear Paul so you must be the first one to tear this changer down completely, and have it working correctly afterwards. Yes, I know that the trip finger on that Philco M-22 changer is a nightmare as I had to use a small LED flashlight to peer inside the changer in order to see it while I was adjusting the height of the tone arm on the shaft. When I found the correct height, I used a makeshift jig to keep the tone arm from dropping down from that position while I made the other adjustments.

I don't have the Philco service manual for the M-22 changer, but rather the Sams photofact. That's why I quickly ignored the Sam's, and simply used my own expertise in re-installing the tone arm, and making the necessary adjustments. After all the other adjustments were completed, I then tightened down the tone arm onto the shaft.

Hey Paul,
Where did you locate the Philco service sheets ?
For future reference here.
