Default Power lead for a Garrard 401

Hi, I have been given a Garrard 401 but without a 3 prong power lead so not sure if it is working!
I am very new to this and have checked every where online but can't seem to get hold of one? Not sure if I'm writing the right thing or if it doesn't exist any more?
Will I need to change the power socket or is there an adapter?
I have tried 401 shops on line and looked at old manuals but nothing is coming up. I'd really appreciate any help in this matter as I no longer know where to search?

Have you not got a mains wire attached to the 401 motor ?

Mine has an IEC socket wired to a lead that goes to the motor terminal board, but that is not standard.

Hi,

It's a while since I did anything with a 401 so perhaps Philip or someone will have a look and see that the following is correct.

The manual is here, http://www.arrakis.es/~igapop/Garrard.htm

Page 11 has the instructions and p.9 and 12 the diagrams.

Afaik you just need a 2 or 3 core mains lead with a mains plug on one end and the other connected as shown.

For safety, an earth wire should be fitted from the deck plate earth tag to mains earth or an earth post on the amplifier (hence you might want to use a 2 or 3 core mains lead).

Pic attached of this wiring, brown, blue, green/yellow, going from a small black Bulgin plug in this case I think, to the deck connector block and earth.

Fit a 3A fuse to the plug and if in any doubt seek help from a TV/audio repair shop.

Rich

When I rebuilt my 401 (ages ago) several photos were taken to aid re assembly.

This one shows where the mains wires are connected, underneath the white cover.
