    Default REMOVEING ITTOK LEAD FROM LP12 INSTRUCTIONS

    REMOVE THE MAINS PLUG

    and remove the base plate....make sure you have taken the platter off and inner platter and belt

    also plug up the bearing so no oil drains out

    once you loosten the 1.3mm allan screw you can pull the external cable out of arm

    next we need to losten the arm P clip....note how the cable is bent round the clip

    attach the blue earth lead to the 3rd screw on the linn arm board ( i had to scrape a little of the paint away on the sub chassis to get the earth to make a conection with the sub chassis

    tighten the 1.3mm external clamp screw

    make sure the cable is straight and not too tight pulling the suspension

    then fit the P clip and tighten

    note i have a small screw driver thro the P clip pulling it tight as i screw the bolt down

    Don't do that P clip up too tight or the electrons won't be able to get out

    I already have one of your leads on my Ittok John. Could you do one for my Grace G707 bearing in mind it has a different plug on the end, one with exposed pins?

    lo m8

    as far as i can remeber the grace uses the reverse of a linn lead

    it uses the female part in the arm pillar...and the male in the external lead...does that sound right?

    It's something like that John. I thought maybe I could junk the lot and fit a Linn socket and plug as per Ittok etc. Maybe even machine a brass plug like OL and use continuous cable, Any ideas?

    Thats interesting.Makes life so much easier than balancing the thing on a couple of chairs or whatever while you at it from peer underneath.

    Does the deck need readjusting after being on it`s side or will it be ok?
