Welcome to the phono forum.

1. If you have the photofact 931-3, you will see under the parts page 21,
listings for cartridges used in the Admiral changer.

Admiral cart # 409C86-1, stylus # 98C95-55

Alternate cartridge:
E-V (Electro-voice) cart: # 5257D, stylus # 3316-DS

2. Your photo is unrecognizeable, please re-size and post
a photo of the record changer and cartridge.

3. Contact Gary @ the voice of music.com for the stylus/needle.

4. Have you checked that the cartridge is functional ?

Rub your finger gently over the end of the cartridge where the
stylus saddle is. You should hear some noise through both sides of
the stereo speakers.

Thanks for the photo.

Will you take the records off the changer and take
a more clear photo of the record changer ?

From here, it actually looks like a BSR-made record changer
with a tetrad style phono cartridge.

The changer is a BSR and is probably a replacement. The original changer in that model would have been an Admiral/Ensign.

1. Yes, that record changer is a BSR brand with a Tetrad
stereo cartridge.

2. Turn on the phono and rub your finger gently across
the rubber saddle where the stylus/needle should fit.

If you get sound from both channels, the cart is probably OK.

3. Here is a reference page for Tetrad styli 854 from the Voice of Music.
There are several other Tetrad styli types, too. Contact Gary at V of Music to
confirm which cartridge you have in the BSR.
