I have been working on this 1968 RCA combo. I replaced the electrolitic caps in the amp and cleaned and lubed the record changer. It is working well now but the tonearm does not set down in the right spot. On lps it slips off the edge of the record. How are they adjusted?

There is likely a hole in the changer baseplate near the tonearm.
When the platter is spun by hand slowly, and set for a specific size (12/7/10 inch) there's a screwhead that lines up with this hole.
Careful slight adjustments can be made with this screw to correct the set-down point of the needle.
I don't remember the size setting for the adjustment of this changer - you didn't provide the model number - but when the arm is ready to set down, this screw will be visible in the hole.
