Dead for rebuilding?
I ask because you will not find one that is good 99.9% of the time.
Substitute as in a "New one" like a P-51-3?

Thanks for the reply. I have the original cartridge. Is there a way to rebuild myself? The tone arm is very heavy so using the P51-3 the tone arm would somehow need to be re-balanced. There is no rear end per say on the tone arm. May need a spring or add some butt to it.

Yes there is a way,
I either rebuild mine or use a counter spring when possible for the newer carts.
PM me so we don't keep posting here and I will help you with everything you need to do or can do.
I also have kits you can use to do the rebuild.
