Default Converting a 110V 60Hz Garrard 301 to 220V 50Hz

Hi,

I wonder if there is any kind soul who can share how to covert a 60Hz Garrard 301 to operate in 220V 50Hz mains?

So far, I heard is I need to acquire an "ideler wheel" or "pully" for 50Hz operation.

Would somebody who have done that before share with me links and contacts where I can purchase that "pully" and what are the other points to note.

Thanks

The voltage is set using jumpers in the brown connection box. It's quite logical once opened.

The motor runs at a speed that is loosely locked to mains frequency, so it runs slower on 50Hz mains than on 60Hz. Therefore, a 50Hz pulley is larger than a 60Hz pulley. If you have not yet solved the problem, I have a 301 50Hz pulley that you could have.

Thanks a lot for your enlightenment.
