Default Thorens TP 14 tonearm repair

Hi,
on all Thorens TP 14 tonearms I have seen, the tracking force balancing weight is sagging. This is because the rubber decoupling part has degraded.
To repair this, I use two PVC grommets from Farnell, part number 152-332.
Cut off one side of each grommet, leaving the middle part intact.
With a sharp cutter knife, reduce the diameter of the crommet that goes in the arm tube, to make it fit.
That's all.
I am open to all comments.
Best regards, 968driver.
