Fixing a noisy motor in a NAD 5120 turntable

I was recently given a NAD 5120 by my good pal Stephen Ansell from HiFi Hangar. The Deck was in very good condition, but had a noisy motor I've stripped and serviced a few of these decks as described in my other NAD blog, b ut this time I decided to make a video of stripping the deck and giving the motor a quick service

Hi Jonathan, following up to our chat on youtube with ref the nad 5120 motor issue. Is it possible to maybe pm you to send the motor to you for assessment? Kind regards, Nick.

Hi Jonathan, thanks for your video on youtube reference the nad 5120 motor. Cleaning only hasnt fixed my motor noise, thinking about desoldering the motor and gettting you to assess it. I suspect the thrust bearing is missing, looks like previous owner mangled the casing etc. Can i pop in a ball bearing, i have a supply of rc car bearings of size 2mm approx? Thanks John, Nick.

Sure, I suspect the ball may be missing from the lower thrust bearing. When the motor is open have a look down black plastic fittin in the bottom of the motor. There should be a tiny bearing in there, might need a torch to see it, but its job is to keep the motor pushed up, happy to take a look if you want to remove it (you'll need to desolder and remember which wire went where) and send to me I'm jonathanivesATgmailDOTcom
