Hi all. I have a vintage GE C650 with a tonal 1 arm. My stylus broke and I have gotten a replacement for it. However, I am having trouble installing the new stylus. At first I thought I had a piece missing but I noticed another poster had the same issue previously. I will upload an image of the arm to show you. Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

You slip the tab at the rear of the stylus assembly under the metal clip in the center of the cartridge.

Yes, you have the wrong stylus, that one goes to a cheap Astatic cartridge.

You need a Phanstiehl 510-DS77 or 510-DS73, the 77 is LP stylus on both sides, diamond and sapphire, the 73 is LP and 78 stylus.
