Studer A80 and B62 FULL bearing overhaul kits

Nagravox

$580.00 AUD 

If any of your bearings are noisy or suspect then it may be a good idea to replace all the bearings. On the A80 there are  a lot and will involve major disassembly and fine mechanical setup! 

There are two different kits dependent on 1/4" and multi-track models. All 3 motors are included and for the B62 also the pinch roller bearing.

A80, R, RC, QC & VU mk1, A81 1/4" and 1/2"

  • 26 bearings
  • 30 bellville washers
  • 14 C clips
  • 4 outer ciclips
  • 12 inner circlips

A80 multitrack VU mk 2 - 4 & MR 1/2" - 2"

  • 28 bearings
  • 30 bellville washers
  • 14 C clips
  • 4 outer ciclips
  • 12 inner circlips
  • 8 special spacer washers

B62 2 versions 

  • 18 bearings  - mk1 version with roller bearing capstan = 20
  • 18 bellville washers
  • 4  ciclips
  • 8 replacement small balls for tension arms(in case you lose some!)

All kits include pinch roller bearing and commonly replaced bellville washers, circlips, C clips and special spacers.

Capstan motors need lubricating every ~500 hours or 6 - 12 months and full clean and bottom / top lubricant replenishment at ~2000 hours or 2 - 3 years. 

Reel motors need to have their bearings replaced every 2000 hours or 2 - 4 years. Do this and the motors will last a long long time. Most motors I have come across have never been serviced and the lubricating felts are dry. Luckily these old capstan motors are really robust and can be brought back to good serviceable condition. They are relatively easy to dismantle and once upgraded / serviced will run smoother with less noise. With a good clean, new bearings and a lubrication its surprising how well an old motor can run. Dont take a chance on dubious bearing sources or lubricants.  Get the full Nagravox kit for all your motors.

Later capstan motors use Isoflex PDP65 and no other lubricant should be used or mixed with it. Early B62 motors may use Mobil DTH-EH lubricant.
