Hi All,

I'm fixing up a BSR turntable that came out of a Sears Console. It has a label inside that says:

UA15SS.A-3D
PS1108U.76

I've got it working okay now except for one thing. The auto start drops the needle a little to far in, in the middle of the 1st track of a record.

How do I adjust this?

Sam

Some of the tonearms in these are of different looking style.

The tonearm stylus set-down screw, though, should be the same.

Thanks! I got that adjusted. But now the auto return doesn't trigger at the end of the record.

Also the record drop spindle stopped working :(.

Alright fixed the spindle. It had a bent piece.

It seems like the auto-return position is set by the same set-down screw as well. Is that true. Maybe I can find a position that works for both...

I have the same model we are trying to work on but I can't seem to find any replacement belts that size. We measured 733 mm or 28 3/4. seems awfully large. also the writing is kind of worn off, what does it say on the second knob down besides FM/AM? thanks.
