Default Brenell MK5 M Series3

I have just acquired the above machine and roughly it works.

The electronics is a little noisy but the main problem is the suppressor units
connected across the deck switching.
The takeup motor revolves slowly when the deck is at idle showing leakage..

Can anyone recommend a suitable component to replace these suppressors.

The Brenell manual has no information at all.

Thanks

I have just looked at a series 1 deck and they appear to be 0.01uf in series with 220 ohms in an encapsulated block, I doubt the values are critical but the cap needs to be mains rated, obviously.

We used to use a similar block with values of 0.1uf and 100ohms, they packed up frequently, I once had a weekend trip to Dusseldorf to fix a continual running spool motor and diagnosed the problem in 30 seconds.

On another occasion the suppressor was connected to earth and when it failed it took out the breaker for the entire electricity supply to the basement studio (no Windows).

Farnell do various types :-
