Hello Dorian,

I was going to say that this is the Automatic Stop Lever so outside as per the photos is correct. However I am now confused because if it was the Automatic Stop Lever than it looks far too close to the heads and is in the incorrect orientation ?

Could you please do another photo but showing a larger surrounding area.

David

Tape lifter for FF/Rew? If it is then tape on the outside.

Lawrence.

Concur with Lawrence, it is definitely the tape lifter arm, so tape on the outside as per the photos is correct, no need now for any more photos for it.
