Default Sierra tape recorder

I have been asked to repair this tape recorder which is actually a Philips clone.

Can anyone tell me which Philips it is so I can order the rubber parts and belts?

Doesn't the N4306 have the keys to the left of the deck?

The EL3555 / EL5575 seems nearest, though the deck itself is not unlike the much later N4408 with that central metal pulley.

What's the model number of the Sierra? They were continental and wholly owned by Philips, possibly a bit like Philips and Pye over here where Pye was the 'second' brand.
