Misc. Photo


A reader in Italy sends in some photos illustrating his successful attempt at repairing a TD160 motor.  Here are his comments:

"I send this mail to you with some pictures of an open motor from Thorens Td160.  It was damaged and turned in any direction independently of the capacitor.  So I opened it and noticed a winding with a "non-connected wire".  I soldered it and repaired the motor.  Now it works.  Maybe it will help someone.  Best regards. Bogdan Siwanowicz.  Udine, Italy"
