The belts and a repair kit for Sony TC366 reel to reel tape recordersI have developed a complete kit containing belts and fully illustrated, step by step instructions to repair these popular recorders. The most common problem is that the drive belts stretch and perish with age and need to be replaced. The kit includes new belts and a 22 page, bound, A4 Instruction manual with step by step instructions. The manual covers all aspects from dismantling and replacement through to cleaning and lubrication. Sony recommended lubrication every 500 hours so your machine may be well overdue. The good news is that the kit contains everything you will need to get you machine working correctly again. The Kit covers the TC-366 version. If you have the TC 377 TC 378 or TC 399 then please see the the other listing for the correct parts. I have other listings with parts for other Sony TC reel to reel machines including the reel retainers for the TC-366 The instructions cover all of the differences between the different versions. The manual is full of hints and tips, ideas, diagrams and photos. It contains all the information you will need and explains the best way to go about it. Importantly, it contains vital details such as how to dismantle the machine correctly without damaging anything and which screws not to remove to prevent irreparable damage. You will need a few tools such as various screwdrivers, pliers etc. None of the tasks requires specialist skills, Common sense and very basic electrical / mechanical knowledge are required. If you can’t put a 13A plug on and don’t have pair of pliers then this is probably not for you. I can repair machines to order as required. Do they work?
