That leaves the unit with a mechanical problem and no covers

Hi Julian,
I'm interested in the remaining one - I take it that the pics both show the good one, i.e. with the head cover in place?

A bit of a cheek, I know, but if all of the drive-belts on these two are in good condition, may I ask if you have replaced any and what was the source of said belts? I ask because I have a TC-377 which I have renovated, but the replacement drive-belts that I used seem to have gone bad again. My source was a chap in the USA.
Colin.

The previous owner seems to have replaced a couple on one machine as there were two packs marked Sony. The packs now contain the old circular-section belts
The smaller is ~75mm o.d. type 3-518-069-00 and marked TC-377, TC-399, TC-388-4
The larger is somewhere around 120mm o.d. type 3-472-332-01 and marked TC-366
Both appear to be normal O-ring rubber, but who knows
Beyond that I'm afraid I cannot help

Hi Julian,

Is the TC-377 still for sale?, I'll be up your neck of the woods tomorrow/Wednesday morning.

Hi Colin,
I bought a set of TC-377 belts from a UK based Ebay seller last week with no problem (no connection to seller other than as a satisfied customer)

Thanks for that info, Martin. I'll have a look - I hope the price isn't exorbitant!

No UK sellers that I could see, but someone in Italy was offering sets. I decided to take the plunge - let's see what happens.
