[list=][quote][/quote][/list]Thanks for all the reply’s on the slow motor problem, as stated took motor apart and soaked brgs. Now a new problem : Tonearm is rejecting too soon, I know how to adjust the arm to land on the record but can’t find any adjustment to play to the end. I can see the cam and the contact pin and thinking the cam is worn to the point where it’s rejecting about 10 seconds too soon. Anybody got any thoughts? Tks Ron

Easy answer
It’s normal, and it’s the reason they quit making them. They forgot to put in an end of record trip adjustment. Is the cart centered in the tonearm?
The fix is mounting the cartridge offset so it gets to the end of the record before the actual arm does. A P-51 cartridge will work the best as there is room to put it to the inside side of the tonearm. The cam will not affect early tripping.

Thanks Oldrestorer, Mr Lee suggested that also but it still resets with cartridge moved as far as possible. I moved it back to center and as you stated. Leave alone
