Well done Royce.
Sounds like you're almost there..

Hi Rudy, Couple more things to do. 

 

1. I need to replace one speaker

2. The cog for the take up reel axle and supply reel axle is missing. James fixed it with a Panny part replacement. I am looking for those.

3. I need a record key that was found broken.

 

I have another box that is also missing #1 & #2, but the rest is in mint condition.



Excellent thread!

Thanks Reli!

 

If another member needs more pictures, I have more.

As much as I like this box I do have a question that's starting to play on my mind somewhat:  Is this particular box the complex nightmare to work on it looks to be? 

Christine, Instead of making a bigger PC board that can utilize the length and height of the box, the designers left the speaker compartment nearly empty and filled up the middle compartment with layers of PC boards completely covering the cassette section.

 

So one can see only the rear of the motor and nothing else from the back.

 

To answer your question I can say after some explorations to the unknown territory and taking pictures, belt replacement  is not that hard as I expected.  

 

One has to be extra careful in the disassembly process. The top two buttons cane be damaged if it is not pulled up, turned and locked in place. It is easy to break the tuner chord pulley posts and gang wheel. Ribbon wires can get damaged if one is not careful.

 

When the chassis goes in the front face of the box always keep an eye on aligning the counter reset button. It can get easily stuck without coming out of the hole. If that is the case the lower part of the chassis won't fit well. Never hold on to the handle because it can easily slide out from the slots. 

 

 

Belt replacement is the only thing I did after some struggle and hiccups. Now it all became so easy for me to dismantle it and put it all back together.

 

One would would easily fall in love with the sound quality of this box. A little giant in every way!

If you listen to this box one would fall in love with it. 

 

 

Many thanks for this very informative answer. :yes:  The first sentence resulted in perfect clarity to me, once I understood the layout of the boards the mental pictures fell into place so now I can re-read the thread with a little more understanding.  I've wanted to acquire one of these for some time so I'll revisit your comments should I ever find myself rollin' my sleeves up for one of these.  :yes:  :thumbsup:

The reel axle (cog) missing is a big issue!

 

I just saw this nice thread.

 

http://boomboxery.co...table-assembly/

 

I had the same issue mate, I ended up taking the spindles from an Aiwa 950 parts box i had (the deck was long since fubar) as they were incredibly similar and in great shape, plays perfect.

 

I keep decks from any parts box i find and buy them in any shape at bootsales just for aerials/decks/buttons etc so i have quite a spares box, if you have any trouble finding them let me know, i'll compare my spares to my 9998 and find a suitable set and send em to you.

 

Hi T-Ster, Thanks! If you find a pair please PM me. Two would be nice for the time being but need two more for my other M9998. I checked it today and that one is also missing the cogs.
