Default TD 150mkII/ TP13A restoration questions....

Hi All,

I am restoring a TD150MkII for a friend with little spare cash. Unfortunately, both the tracking weight and anti-skating weight are missing from the arm.

I have found a 1.4g number for the anti-skating weight but I do not know if this is correct as the original owners manual does not have the masses written in it.nobody can tell me the mass of the tracking weight so far.

1.I need to know whether the anti-skating mass is correct at 1.4 grammes and what the tracking weight mass is?

2. Recommendations for budget cartridge?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Default Found weight mass:

For reference the tracking weight is 17.3g and the anti-skating weight is confirmed as 1.4g

Still need sources for parts and possible cartridge matches.
