Thanks for the tips, reelguy.

I should have mentioned that I replaced the belts first thing. The long one was so loose it almost removed itself.

I had not given that much thought to the other rubber pieces, though I did clean them (with non-slippery cleaners) during the first run-through. You're right -- there's a rubber drive piece on each end of the shaft, one end turning each reel. And the rubber on the bottom of each reel could be suspect, though all look in pretty good shape. This particular machine had not been used all that much, so I figured it couldn't be worn down. Maybe so.

You're also right about years in service -- the S model was delivered 22 May 1964. The owner had kept all paperwork, receipts, etc.
