Set up is a snap. Double check the spindle-to-pivot distance with a ruler and compare it to the spec.If there is no spec, and the arm was factory installed, leave it. Install the cartridge,slide on the counterweight, balance the arm level, dial-in about 1 1/2 grams of VTF, and set the overhang and alignment with a 2-point protractor.You may have to a adjust a few times till you get it exact, so don't firmly tighten until you get the setting right. Set the VTF to the middle of the range specified for the cartridge. Set the anti-skate to approximately the same setting as the VTF and fine-tune by ear. Set the VTA to approximately level to the record, and fine-tune it in by ear.If there is no VTA, leave it. Of course, it being a non-suspension TT, you want to place the TT on a strong stable surface of high mass. Dress the cables in a soft "droop" coming out of the TT. Not pressed tight against anything, especially the TT. If you have rubber feet, cones will improve the sound. Enjoy!
