The biggest improvement you can make after changing C146/7/8 is to align the PLL as page 10/11 No.6

I've read these posts.
It's okay...but the benefits will be minimal ...if any.
From the moment it starts to wear, a bit more of the ball "sees" the trust plate and after a point the wear is minimal...it takes years of continuous operation to wear it out.
The problem with these inverted bearings is that they run essentially dry.
At the moment i am working on a solution that will make it immersed in oil.
That will really make a difference in maintenance.

What sort of oil do they use in the bearings?

These guys?
What about the series resistors? Would matching them down to a RCH make any difference?

Well...i have opened three of them (SP-10 and SP-10MKII) and they looked bone dry to me.
A minimum of oil was "felt" more than seen on the spindle.
Maybe the oil used was too thin and "evaporated"?
And the bushings are not the type that hold oil in them too.
Maybe the ones i saw were poorly maintained...
In a no compromise rebuilt it's advised to check wear to find if you're after new bushings.

Yes, when the table is upside-down.

The real challenge of that attitude is tracking force...
