when removing the old cart.,lock down the arm and use a small needle nose pliers or tweezers to gently pull off the pins from the cart. When installing a new one i do just the oppisite, leave the stylus guard on and put the wires on and then attach the cart to the headshell. you will need to adjust overhang somehow, the" cheap and good" IMO is the HiFi News test record with alignment protractor included. As far as carts. go, maybe a Grado Platinum ref;Dynavector 10X5; Ortofon OM30; AT 440MLOCC;Denon DL-110/140;Shure V15whatever; or i'm sure there are many other good choices in that price range, maybe someone can elaborate on that.
