Well spotted Clinton. Glad it was that easy to fix. Hopefully the motor mounts are still ok but good to know that new spares are available.
Tom - it's fairly easy to remove the motor by undoing the screws that secure the aluminium plate that contains the motor mount, then undoing the two screw either side of the semi circular aluminium casting that the motor sits on. When this casting is removed you can pull the motor towards you so that the rear shaft of the motor slides out of the rear mount. After that you should be able to take the motor out. You may have to take off a black metal plate that sits over the red record button. The power lead spade connector needs to be disconnected and the earth lead is disconnected when you undo one of the screws of the semi circular casting. The fiddly bit is relocating the motor after replacing the motor mounts because you can't see the rear motor shaft or motor mount and it makes it awkward to locate the shaft into the bearing. But it's doable

The neat thing about the Eumigs is that the mechanical speed control can be set to any speed BETWEEN 18 and 24fps. You can move that lever anywhere in the middle. This is particularly good for finding a correct speed for various silent era films.

Following on from this , by undoing that screw Clinton, doesnt the spinning part now go all the way to the top making it run too fast? I tried this and its way to fast, now i cant seem to re adjust it back don. DOHH [Confused]

Hi Tom,
All I can say is it worked for me,the speed sounds right to me now.
I haven't tried to make it slower doing the same thing.
I'm sure someone will have the answer [Smile]

Cheers from me in New Zealand :-)
