Default Elizabethan 56

Hi folks,

Does anyone know what deck this Elizabethan 56 machine has? It's definitely not a BSR TD2 or a Collaro Studio as I have a couple of other machines with those decks but the motors are Collaro.

The amp side works very well when plugging my Yamaha keyboard into the gram jack socket although the volume pot is a bit crackly so will need some cleaning and it seems mechanically OK in terms of the linkages and interlocking tape deck buttons but there is no power to the motors. I think I'm going to need to check for loose wires with a multimeter.

I'm very keen to get this up and running as it is much better than my other machines that have TD2 decks in that this one has space for full-sized reels and very conveniently located jack inputs on the top. Luckily the schematics were included in the case when I bought this but it would be good to find a service diagram for the deck like the ones I found for the Collaro Studio and TD2s.
