Great news. Well done. It may be that all that needs doing now is to set the phase lock adjustment as detailed in the service manual. If thast not set, as it falls out of lock you get a kick as the platter speed changes while it tries to acquire lock again.

But the fact its going around is a huge thing.

It may be worth checking the frequency of the 50kHz oscilator, it may need adjusting to get to frequency with your new coils. Test probe on C2, Test ground on 0v or chassis.
Resistance isn't futile it's V / I.

Hi all, thank you for your kind comments, this certainly is a labour of love. These turntables are very serviceable unlike a lot of other stuff around.
Build quality is pretty awesome. If maintained properly, I assume they should last forever. I have learnt so much in the last two years, that is how long it has taken.

Fabulous! Image
I never make the same mistake twice. Instead I prefer to fill my day with a variety of different mistakes
