Default Sony TC-377 - Replacement Idler Wheel

Hi - I recently purchased a Sony TC-377 from ebay, worked fine and I've given it a full refurbish.
The only problem I have is when the Idler Wheel engages there is a 'rumbling' sound which changes as the speed changes - which I'm putting down to the Idler Wheel.
There is no speed variation and everything works as it should apart from the 'rumbling' sound.

The rubber looks like it has had a previous repair on the rim (I've reconditioned the rubber with Rubber Renue) and I think there is some 'play' in the bearing (possibly causing the 'rumbling sound).

I think I need a new/used Idler Wheel - can anyone suggest where I can get one from?
