First real project.
Doing up this aka from Nigeria called the President tsr-585. So far replaced the power cap, tweeter caps and worn tape head. There's a problem with the supply spindle - keeps on turning for a bit after pressing stop. Take-up brakes when it should (on rewind). Looks like I'll have to take the upper and lower chassis apart via 6 chunky screws to have a proper look (after undoing the motor mount plate). This is where I get nervous! Will I have bits flying in all directions? Will it be impossible to get back together?
The plastic brake lever appears to operate ok, can't see anything wrong, but then looking at the supply spindle from the side, I see nothing anyway that comes in contact with it when stop is engaged. Maybe this mech doesn't have a brake for the supply??
Also, if anyone knows the exact diameter drive belt for this model that would be handy to know.
Thinking of a mod to the bass circuit too, to extract a bit more bass out. This model has no loudness switch sadly. Any advice on that score much appreciated.
