Default Sanyo VTC 5xxx reel motor replacement?


i'm working on a sanyo VTC 5xxx clone (fisher badged) and the reel motor is definitely bad, a carbon brush is totally missing, the other is in bad shape, and collector is worn.
someone know a suitable replacement?

A donor machine would probably be your best hope. Fortunately, the 5000 series sold well due to its low price. Still quite a few around. I have one here with a bad capstan motor, not got around to finding a donor yet!
