Default Hitachi TRQ-291 Cassette recorder

Hi all
Anyone familiar with these old Hitachi cassette recorders? We had one when I was a kid in the early 70's that the whole family used. I recently picked one up in good condition at a car booty but the play key will not stay down. It uses some weird mechanism that I can only describe like a worm gear and spinning fan type thing? any ideas what the problem might be and where I can source belts/pulleys etc ?
thanks all

eBay - have a large supply of different belts for many different Cassette Decks.

Hopefully you will find on eBay - what you need . . . .

Try Google to see if their any specialists who fix, service cassette decks you could contact.
