From the top with the platter and sub-platter removed, the spindle bushing is clearly visible.  Note that the sub-platter and platter (removed)  are held in place by gravity.  If you turn this table upside down, they will fall out....!  Note also the 2-speed motor pulley and speed selector lever.  The lever moves the flat  belt between the different diameters of the pulley to achieve either 33-1/3rpm or 45rpm.  The post behind the pulley is a safety device that keeps the outer platter from colliding with the pulley.  I'm keeping this post in place.
