    Tonights Update - The Reference Lenco Pt XXXXVII - It's all a bit Dave Clarke 5, or the Lenco is in pieces again .

    It's been a while since I last wrote so I thought I'd better update the thread. I've heard back from J7 and the Alphason tonearm is now getting looked over. The bearing appears to be in perfect nick, lets hope the rest of the tonearm is in the same state. I have a sense of urgency now because the tonearm will be here in a few days. I have been experimenting with the motor whilst the deck has been stripped and I think I've noticed a few areas where things can be improved with regards vibration isolation. I'm also in the planning stages of decoupling the motor but this is something that I will be leaving for now as I want to hear the sonic changes to the deck.

    It's all a bit Dave Clark!

    The motor is now covered in Dynamat. The Dynamat was sitting at the bottom of the spare cables just gathering dust. I managed to use up all the spare Dynamat that I had and I've done a pretty good job covering the whole of the motor with special attention being paid to the motor cage and spindle head.

    DSCN2996.jpg

    I found some rubber washers which I'm going to use on the bearing's spindle between the bearing locking brace. The idea is to try and trap isolation from the bearing getting back into the plinth or to minimise.

    DSCN2997.jpg

    Now this next picture is interesting. It shows a gap between the motor springs and the top plate. I'm looking for a suitable thickness rubber washer to stuff in here to try and dampen vibration even further.

    DSCN2999.jpg

    A quick picture showing how crowded it is under the hood. Decoupling the motor is very easy but the tricky bit is deciding which method to use.

    Tomorrow night will be spent looking at the motor and seeing what can be done to dampen the vibrations in the motor.

    Enough for tonight. As ever, stay tuned......

    Back on the trail again Andy . This looks like good work once again . I remember mucking around with the GL75 and I took the suspension springs out not realizing that the motor was touching the wooden body of the turntable . Flippin eck , that little motor can vibrate . I was taken aback how much TBH . So any work in that area seems to be a very good idea in my opinion .
    I have little ball bearings which fit into the adjuster at the end of the motor spindle ( supposedly an upgrade ) if you're interested in one or two of them to try .
    Fantastic pictures once again BTW
    Regards

    Minor update. Just ordered x3 sets of isolation spikes from Hong Kong. Should be fun and will enable me to add greater isolation to the deck and the isolation board that I use with the '75. I also additionally had no way of levelling the deck that's a problem now solved.
