Default C64 Datasette Slow Running

Hi Folks,

Just wondered if anyone can give any pointers on fixing a C64 datasette that runs very slow, eventually stopping during tape load.

Worn rubber components? I haven't delved inside yet, just wanted to prepare for any bits I might need to buy.

Cheers
Adam

Most likely worn/stretched belts but check that all parts are free running when the belts are removed.
