Hi Group, Bob Stewart asked about a Wurlitzer 146A Operating

opened again the two facing 8-1/2 X 11 inch pages show a labeled photo,
"Rear View - Interior Of Organ", which looks similar to my 146A, and
the other page is titled "Directions for the Care & Operation of the
Military Band Organ Equipped with the Single Long Roll Tracker Frame."
Some of the subtitles are "To Put On The Music Roll, To Regulate The
Tracker Bar Should The Music Roll Not Track Properly, How The Music
Rewind Device Works ...", and it ends with "Note: We have tried to make
our organs as simple in construction as possible. If there is any
adjustment that you do not understand or you have any troubles that you
