Spring-Held Head Suspension Assembly

       Use of the illustrated mounting makes it possible hold and
position current glide and magnetic assemblies by means of
spring-loaded thus allowing for ease of operation and self-

      The arm 1 is assembled with the head/suspension mounting
assembly 2.  Due to its symmetrical design the block can be mounted
on either side of the arm 1 for use top or bottom head/ suspension
assemblies.  The dowels provide alignment and a bearing surface to
act as a guide pressing on the top side of the block 2.  The spring
4 the automatic return and holding pressure.  The pins 6 are at a
30-degree taper to allow them to slip the mounting holes of the
head/suspension assembly 5. also allow for the proper pressure on the
mounting of the suspension assembly.  The pins 6 are into the spring
plate 7, thus for upward force the datum mounting surface of the
head/suspension to be flat against the arm 1.

      To use the assembly, apply downward pressure on the 2, hook the
suspension assembly mounting holes over pins 6, and release the
pressure on block 2.  This will line up the suspension and hold it
flat the arm 1.
