I am having problems stringing the dial on my Realistic STA 90 receiver. the tab holding the spring in place broke. I installed a screw and that seems to work good, but the string isn't tight enough, (the tuning knob slips way too much) and the dial is out on both ends. This used to work flawlessly so it has to be in my repair, but I can't see where I went wrong. If anybody has some experience with this, I would love to hear from you, or if you have a service manual, a photocopy would be appreciated. This is an old receiver (replace old with antique) but it is a good one IMHO and the only thing worse the a crappy sounding stereo, is one that doesn't work.
