Website with lots of pictures showing belt replacement and more

Some members have reported issues with the capstan motor needing to be replaced but it doesn’t seem to be very common.
If you’re picking up a secondhand machine, count on the fact that you would best replace the capstan belt which is pretty easy to do and in many cases machine that is reported to not engage play will have a melted black gooey mess which can be cleaned up and the belt replaced as per the website noted above.
