    Default Yamaha pf 800 info needed

    Hello, everyone, longtime lurker finally posting
    This Is my first post here so bare with me.

    I recently acquired a yamaha pf 800 turntable.
    I am having trouble finding out some info on it.
    I was wondering if anyone out there has ever had one of these, and if so if they know how to separate the subplatter from the spindle. Also if anyone knows how to add damping fluid to the cuing. Mine drops a little fast and abruptly. I noticed a post by Darqueknight that he added fluid, but cannot figure out how. This and any other info of help about this table would be great. Thanks in advance and I really enjoy this forum and am happy I finnaly made the plunge.

    Welcome to Clubpolk!

    Here is a link to the manual for your TT. You are required to join the forum to download, but it is one of the best sites for vinyl lovers out there. I don't know why you need to separate the platter from spindle since on a DD TT there is very little to see.

    I think steveinaz mentioned that he owned this table once also. Maybe he will chime in and offer you up some help. Welcome to CP.

    Thanks for the info and help so far guys.
    keep it coming. So for it seems like it will be a great table, but there are certain maintenance issues since it has been literally sitting for twenty years.
