Hello all:
I need to remove the three spring barrels from this Garrard No. 7a motor to have the springs cleaned and re-greased. It appears that they're held in place by a single shaft with one set screw, like Victor motors. Before diving in, are there any issues I should know?
Gentle tapping hasn't moved it yet, and I don't want to damage anything. Springs are all wound down and relaxed.
Thanks for any help!

Well, I've answered my own question; The spring barrel shaft tapped out just fine after putting a little Kroil on it and letting it sit a few minutes.
