Beogram 4002/4004 (5513): Adjustment of the Platter Bearing
I continued working on the Beogram 4002 (5513) that I am restoring right now. This post reports about adjusting the platter height and tilt. When I received the unit, the platter was at the wrong height and also had significant tilt. The procedure with this model is similar to what I show in the video that I made about this process on the occasion of a Beogram 4000 restoration, but the bearing mount is different in the 5513 type, so I made another video. The key difference between the later 4002/4004 and the original 4000 bearing is that the bearing is now mounted on a tripod plate. Please, watch the video for details of the process. It shows how to do measure the platter alignment and how to adjust the bearing. Enjoy!
