Vintage DD turntables. Are we living dangerously?

I have just acquired a 32 year old JVC/Victor TT-101 DD turntable after having its lesser brother, the TT-81 for the last year.
This is one of the great DD designs made at a time when the giant Japanese electronics companies like Technics, Denon, JVC/Victor and Pioneer could pour millions of dollars into 'flagship' models to 'enhance' their lower range models which often sold in the millions.
Because of their complexity however.......if they are 'unobtanium'....and they often cannot be repaired.
This problem is what happens to my turntable.

Same with mine as described by Lew and explained by John, would be nice to know how you will fix that. I put my TT-101 aside. 

very interesting your repair, do you want to describe how you solved your problems?
Did you take photos to document all the repair?
It would be very interesting to see how you repaired the engine.
I am very convinced that the pivot oil will need to be replaced if you want to have the turntable in full efficency...for my turntable I will do this.

beautiful ........ already seen those videos several days ago, much has been said on an Italian forum. I think the engine (engine only) can cost about 8000-9000 €, but they are just hypothesis; until next spring (when it will be marketed) all enthusiasts will know the exact price.

have you abandoned your intention to ship it to Wilkinson labs?
We will see if I can solve the problems and it is ok I will report here what the cause was.

I don't typically document jobs I do for others.  Lots of things can contribute to an over-current protection, from intermittent connections to poor calibration.  I very much doubt your issue is being caused by the motor. 
Anyone can post a list a capacitors for TT-101 ? 
Someone who replaced the original oldies may still have a list of a new nice caps (full set, it would be easier to find them for newbies like myself :) @halcro @lewm ?
