Can anyone here point me to the service manual for my SL1700 Mk1 - or for similar Mk1 SL1600 or 1800? Iíve only found manuals on the Mk2 version which is different in several ways, including the arm.

Iím seeking instructions as to how to safely remove just the arm-tube from the rest of the pivot/gimbal assembly (or whatever itís called) without having to remove everything including the Ďarm-boardí and risk messing up the armís auto-return function.

My reason for seeking to replace the armtube, btw, is that Iím hoping to modify the arm to a straight version similar to that linked here; http://theartofsound.net/forum/showt...well-all-of-it!

Any help would be appreciated.
