Default Re: Philips N4520 alignment problems

I found another online photo of the Philips head's face and it looked the same.

What's puzzling to me though is that this is a 4 track stereo machine but the head looks like a 4 track/4 channel head but with the tracks 2 and 4 pole pieces wider.

The heads should only have track 1 and track 3 capability so the wider sections seem strange as they wouldn't normally be there or be visible.

Attached photo of an older style Phillips 4 track head. I guess the thinner section between the pole pieces represents some sort of magnetic shield between them.
