Hi all, trying to diagnose an issue with my Zenith cobra phono. It's a 49 Zenith 78 player. Model 14004. Here's what the issue is.... when using the auto record drop ,when the record drops, the record hits the tone arm . The tone arm is adjusted properly for sit down and height. It seems to come over too fast? as the record drops the tone arm is already over to sit down on the record. Not much info in riders on this issue. It seems as if the 2 operations are out of sync. Not sure what to adjust on this.The mech that drops the records appears to be working properly. Any info is greatly appreciated.FIXED

The cam that pushed the record off the post was incorrectly installed.It was turned 180 from where it was supposed to be putting the whole automatic process out of sync.
