"Push the headshell in and hold it in that position with one hand then with your other hand put the bolt in and tighten it down,once this is done you can release the headshell and you are ready to go!"
Yep, that's close to what I have done but I am not comfortable about the fact that one is pushing against the tonearm bearings. I have tried to have the bolt in and hold the tonearm with one hand and tighten with the other. Again, it's one of the procedures that makes me think we need another arm/hand combo.
"Robert, I'm sorry but the owner's manual is VERY specific on how to do this. Read numbered pictures 115, 116, 117, and 118. This tells you EXACTLY how to do it. Not sure why you're having trouble?"
I suppose part of it is my reluctance to push against the bearings. Also my turntable light is missing since my last move so it is not easy to see when the hole is aligned with the slot. But then I mentioned something like that didn't I? Despite my sarcasm, I do appreciate you trying to help.
"Push the headshell in until before spring action of the pins.Then put the locking allen bolt in the headshell's hole and gently push the headshell again further back.When the springs are compressed the bolt will fall through the slot by itself.Then tighten the bolt."
Gonna try that now.
Thanks to all,
Robert A. Ober
PS: I think I have in correctly but I will try the above to be sure.
