Hey Mark,
I am aware of the screws under the Plinth/platter for adjustment, and had did it before on my other model. Problem is I forget some little things over 4 years of not having it.

I seem to recall having mine being able to float with a lot more range and looking through this one I can't see anything that should be restricting this. Of course I can loosen up the suspension with just a Phillips type screw driver for the suspension. The legs balance totally on their own and just a basic 3 point balance system.

Also I emailed the seller to see if he placed something in the suspension for transport but at the moment I have heard nothing. Either way still a few steps before its all up and running correctly.

Make sure that your belt and motor spindle are free of any kind of oil from touching them with your hands.
Also make sure your belt tension has not been reduced by stretching due to age.
These become more of an issue with heavy platters some use.
Many moons ago an Ariston I had did this and cleaning and tightning the belt cured the speed variations

Default Also consider removing the foam "dampers" inside the coil springs.

These can rot and pieces can stick within the coils of the springs. If the springs are suspect I would suggest either new springs, or a much less expensive alternative, such as suggested on user510's site ( search for the analog dept. on the Interweb).
