Question arm rewiring

How do you rewire an arm? I have a serious hum problem with my lenco 75, and it seems to come from the wiring inside the arm. Now, i know where the wires start (after the contacts at the headshell) and where they come out, but apart from drilling out the contacts, and pulling very hard, I do not see a way to get to them.

Any more sensible starting points?

I started by taking everything off it without resorting to force or tool. But I think that the plastic plug holding the contacts for the headshell is held by the pin that aligns the headshell. If this is true, then the only solution is to drill that pīn. This is something I would rather not do.

Havoc,

maybe you could try to pull the pin out with your pliers?

Tried, but it sticks out less than 0.5mm. Not possible to grip it with pliers.

Hmmh,

there must be some means to reach the backside of the contact plug.

Repeat, ask Jocko and mrfeedback. Email them if necessary.

BTW, i would take this opportunity to figure out a way to get rid of the additional (and sound-deterioating) contacts. Why not wire the arm on its outside, using adhesive tape to hold the wires?

If there is no easy way, that's the way it will be. No so nice, but who cares?
