The belts and a repair kit for Sony TC366 TC377, TC378 and TC399 reel to reel tape recorders

I 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, TC-377, TC-378 and TC-399 recorders. 4 belts are included to cover all of the versions.

I have other listings with parts for other Sony TC reel to reel machines.

The instructions cover all of the differences between the different versions.

It 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?   Users of my range of kits have commented:

The instructions are available at a fraction of the cost that restored recorders sell for.

So at last you can repair that old and treasured recorder that has been sitting in the loft for years.

All components and materials supplied are new.

Dispatch usually within 24Hrs by 1st class post.

Please note that the instructions do not cover any electrical or electronic repairs so please try your recorder out to check the electrical side is working.  If you need any assistance please get in touch and I'll give you some simple tests to try.

Payment by PayPal, cheque or Postal Order please.  I offer a full 7 day return policy.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask, I'll do my best to answer them.
