Question about Nakamichi Audio Players & Recorders
If you need a cam motor, they can be found but mounting might have to be modified. The best way to get an answer is to connect with those Technician who used to work for the company in the past. On Tapeheads dot net the user name Nakdoc or Perry would be the best people to deal with in this case. They are both Technicians who could fix it for you as well as get it going in the best of condition.

Check leaf switches and also, press play -- after a few minutes, feel motor(s) for heat build up. If it gets hot, either motor is bad of something is preventing it from rotating

Your capstan motor may be so badly worn that it is time for a new motor. Motors that are old and worn usually do speed up until the brushes break inside and the motor just stops. You do not state the model but there are guys that still work on them.

It could be the take up spindle does not have enough torque causing the tape to bunch up after the capstan. If you open up the unit you will notice ether belts or rollers for the tape drive. If it has belts you can replace the belt after cleaning the pulleys. If it has rollers you may be able to clean them with a rubber cleaner (not alcohol which will dry the rubber and cause glazing). Make sure the capstan and the pinch roller is clean using a rubber revitalizing cleaner on the pinch roller. "Goof off" from a hardware store is great for the capstan if it has a lot of metal oxide on it.
