Hello. I am really embarrassed... as i have forgot how to put back together the capstan motor ..there is nothing in the service manual or pictures on the net...

The reason i took it apart to oil the bearings....well I found out that these are ball bearings! and somewhat sealed....but i did put some oil in them ..but i forget exactly how it goes back together...pictures would be nice

I am about 3/4 done with recapping the unit....I am looking forward to hearing it after all this work!

before i decided to do this work it was running good and I have a master tape someone did ...man this deck is dynamite

Thanks for your help

Lawrence

 Lawrence,

  Reassembly can always be a surprise. I suggest that if you don't find help here, that you go to the
 audioengine website. Guys, is that the right site? I'm having trouble remembering it since it's been a long time. In the meantime, I will search and report back.

  Now, I AM embarrassed! I thought that you were talking about a turntable motor! My mistake, and the site would have been 'vinyl engine'. Such a great site, but alas, does not pertain.

I have not taken one of the motors apart, so I can't be much help. i'd suggest asking on the Tape Project Forum, and if no one can help you there you might ask Jeff Jacobs at j-corder.com to talk you through it.
