Hello guys,

I recently buy a nice Crown 980L for almost nothing (50 euros), but the cassette deck won't work (need new belts) avec both antennas are missing.

I'm not an expert in belts, so when i replace them the cassette player was playing too fast...because it wasn't the good dimension i guess. 
Where can i buy the right belts for this box ?

About the antennas, same request where can i buy generics antennas that will fit on the box ?

Thank you in advance for your advices

Cheers from France

Pierre

I would really like to see someone putting parts from 980 to a 850 chassy. Should use the tweeter grills from 980 though.  :-P I absolutely adore my 850. The only weak points of it are the mediocre sounding deck and the original tweeters that are lacking the clarity. I think the 980 really goes a notch further with the deck (metal playback) and the receiver with presets (gotta love that)  :drool:

 

34 years and the bass still hits hard and low :rock: just wow.

 

You can set the playback speed. It shouldn't be because of wrong belts, setting is just off. Maybe some owner set the motor faster after the belts came a bit loose and then when some other owner changed the belts, it now plays as it should but with too much speed...

 

I don't remember where the setting is, sorry. I am pretty sure there are pictures floating somewhere.
