8 track player moters run but it doesnt pick up the music.

I have a Montgomery Ward stereo. The turntable & tuner work. When I first put the 8 track in the player nothing happened. I tried different tapes, it s not the tapes.I tried the track button & you could hear tapes switching tracks throuh the speakers. Then I started jiggling the 8 track and the moter or something started to work but it wasnt picking up the music. Again tried different tapes. Still no music. How do i solve this problem. I cleaned the heads & have tried the matchbook trick. nothing. Please help!

Sounds like either the head is open circuit or more likely the pre-amp for the 8-track has gone. Follow the leads from the head and it should lead you to the PC board of the amp. Check for broken connections first. You should get the pre-amp to buzz by touching the terminals where the head leads join. As you are getting no sound from either channel it might be the power to the board. But if you see a single IC it might have gone. For the power option (if the channels are seperate) suspect the largest electrolytic capacitor on the pre-amp board first.
By the way if you get a buzz from both channels the head has gone.

Can anyone tell me what size table saw a Montgomery Ward Powr Kraft, it looks like model tpf34867, would be? Maybe 8, 9, pr 10 inch.


Ask around your friends and associates for a used 10" blade and see if it will fit.
Back when those were made, most all were 10".
The saws using smaller blades of 8 or 9 are much more recently produced.
God bless your efforts

Clarinette 107 stereo cassette 8 track and record player. stereo works, but record player will not work. how do i find the problem?


I'm assuming you have a belt driven platter. Lift up the rubber mat, turn the platter it to where the motor spindle is, and see if the belt is still on. For more information or further questions, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

I have a Montgomery Ward Snow Thrower Model 495A. A rope got caught in the auger. Now the motor runs but the auger will not turn. Any idea what was broken and where I can get parts to fix it?


I have an older Montgomery Ward Snow Thrower model No. TM0-35286A and I'm having a hard time finding parts for it. The tiller just stopped working so I'm thinking the worm-gear is shot, but I can't even find the part on-line...Can you help?
