Lenco 36 mm

idler wheel rubber tyre


Lenco started to manufacture portable record players in the mid fifties, early models had an idler wheel with a 60 mm diameter. With the J-581 model the drive system and the idler wheel was modified. As with many rubbers it will change its property over time. In the case of the 36 mm idler wheel, the rubber will harden and you will hear an awful crackling noise when you operate the record player.

Until recently it was nearly impossible to find a replacement as the production stopped in the late seventies. Many visitors of my website were asking and looking for a replacement. Well, I did let re-produce the rubber wheel lately and after extensive tests I am ready to deliver a 100% fitting part.

The old and hard rubber can easy be removed from its plastic support and within a couple of minutes re-placed with a new one. There is nothing to adjust as it fits a 100% !

The rubber wheel will fit on many Lenco portable record player - see the compatibility list below.

Orders can be placed via e-mail to: maxaeschlimann(at)yahoo.com

Price: CHF 10.—/ per piece plus shipping!

The following instructions will guide you through the replace procedure of the old and worn rubber wheel.
