To quote Eric Reiss, in "The Compleat Talking Machine":
"A new linkage is easily made from a very thin piece of steel wire... The proper length of the link, measured Inside the loops, is 5/16". The C reproducer link is "C" shaped, while the H reproducer link is "S" shaped..."
While you're at it, you should put new gaskets in the reproducer, for best sound.
Hope that helps.

You can buy the parts you usually off of ebay, or APSCO online...at this weblink below... The 2 minute Reproducer used a "C" clip, and the 4-Minute Reproducer used the "S" clip connector originally... What most people don't know is that the "C" connector and the "S" connector do the same jobs and are interchangeable with one another. Many later Edison 1910's Later "C" Reproducers also used the "S" Connectors and ditched (Dropped) the old "C" connectors from the factory for their "C" 2-Minute Reproducers. It's much easier to adjust an "S" connector (Especially for the novice) so I'd use the "S" connector clips for both 2 minute and 4 minute Reproducers...and later on in production, so did Edison. Also, In the Repro kits sold today, The "C" Reproducers (2 Minute)and the "H" Reproducers (4-Minute) both use the same exact Gaskets and the same exact Copper Diaphragm anyway. So, In reality, You really just usually order the "H" 4-minute Repro Gasket and Diaphragm kit for all of your "C" 2-Minute and "H" 4-Minute Reproducers anyway I have found over the years...Check out this weblink: www.antiquephono.com/ Tony K.
