TimmyTonga Posted June 18, 2016 Report Share Posted June 18, 2016 Hi everyone, First off to say kudos to those who complied the 'Restoring an AR-3a' document; it is absolutely crucial for those attempting it for the first time. Without that detailed knowledge, I just wouldn't have attempted it at all. But I wonder whether anyone would like to give me a prognosis on this 3a woofer. As you see, it's riding pretty low in the saddle, lower than its twin, and has a bit of a droop on the RHS, making it a kind of ellipse shape. Resistance reads as it should, about 2.6. You can pull it up quite a long way, and push it down a bit, but it's difficult to do either without hearing the VC scrape. Other opinion has offered me the possibility that it has spent too long on its back, and that I might want to take off the dustcap and stick in some shims to perk it up a bit. Trouble is, I don't want to replace the dustcap with a new one, so would have to take it off in one piece and then glue it back on. This is, by all accounts, not for the faint-hearted. Would anyone just refoam it, and see what happens? Thanks for any input. I have enjoyed reading many posts on this site, and found them really helpful and informative, but this is my first, and I send you best wishes from the UK.
