    Access to M3 Tone Generator, How?

    Later today I'm going to help a friend get a (possibly) stuck tone generator spinning and have read and understand the excellent threads already posted on that. Since I'm not familiar with M3's and haven't seen one, I could not tell the friend how to get the tone generator cover off so he could see the start and run motors. Is it as simple as a few screws? He says it's a rounded cardboard type cover.
    Thanks for all of the previous help!

    Remove the front screws along the bottom of the cover.
    No need to remove the upper back screws....just loosen them off a few turns and lift while pulling forward.

    Great, Thanks Pete! Looking forward to seeing this organ from 1961, best I could tell. It has been sitting for a very long time.

    tspoon,

    Please note that with the M3 tone generator cover off, there is exposed dangerous AC line voltage on the left side open terminal strip in front of the motor/scanner.
