These special made rubber ring replaces the old worn one on idler wheels used in models Rock-Ola 1455, 1458, 1460, 1462, 1464, 1465, 1468, 1475, 1478, 1484, 1485. It is mostly used in models 1488, 1493, 1494, 1495, 1496, and 1497 and can be found in 404, 408, 414, 418 and some later ones up to the mid 1960s too when playing 45 RPM only (no intermix for 45/33 rpm).

To know if this rubber ring fits your old idler wheel please check the following:

  • Can you remove the old rubber ring easily without cutting? The inner diameter of the centre hole is 5.4 mm = 7/32"? And is your jukebox set up for 45 rpm only?
    If yes, then this rubber ring is all you need. To replace remove the old one and clean the groove from old glue and dirt. Apply the new rubber ring. It stays without glue.

  • Or is the rubber vulcanised to the metal? The inner diameter of the centre hole is 4.7 mm = 3/16"? And your jukebox is set up for 45/33 rpm, the so called intermix with a turntable with sensor and pin assembly (three moveable bars around a pin in the center) instead of a big center hub?
    In this case you will need a new compete idler wheel, our item RO112.

Worn, brittle or damaged rubbers cause various sound distortion like ambient noise, cranky or too slow speed.

Der Gummiring passt genau in den Einstich des Alu-Laufrads und überträgt die Umlaufgeschwindigkeit des Plattentellers 100 Prozentig, oder mit keinerlei Gleichlaufschwankung.

Wirklich guter Ersatz ohne wahrnehmbare Laufgeräusche. Einfacher Austausch funktioniert ohne Kleber.

The instructions above make it easy to select the correct replacement. I fitted it to my 430 in under a minute without having to remove the idler wheel. It's a nice, snug fit, but not so tight that it's difficult to stretch over the idler. A good investment. I also recommend using a smartphone app to ensure your turntable is rotating at the correct speed. I used a free IOS app called RPM, but I'm sure other apps are available, and on other platforms.

Der Gummiring hält auf der Antriebsrolle, wie beschrieben, ohne das er geklebt werden muss. Der Plattenteller läuft nach der Montage ohne Gleichlaufschwankungen.
