pre-cirkus bearing and cirkus sub-chasis
Hi,

I am thinking of buying a pre-cirkus bearing/inner platter and have a cirkus sub-chassis.
Does the pre-cirkus bearing fit the cirkus sub-chassis?

Thanks
Allan

Yes the pre Cirkus bearing will fit the Cirkus sub chassis but will cause the platter clearance with the top plate to decrease & MIGHT give you some speed setting difficulty.

The Cirkus chassis is double skinned at the bearing mounting point. The pre Cirkus not so.

I have mixed a pre-Cirkus inner-platter/bearing with a Cirkus subchassis on my 3rd LP12 consisting of older parts. No problem at all except the platter rides a little lower as Glen Points out.
