HI, I purchased new belts for my tapedeck (2 actually: a flat and a square one) but I don't know how to install them. The square belt is visible but I cannot find the flat one. Can you help me?


The flat belts are usually the one from the motor to the flywheel or "capstan." Most people don't realize this, but the capstan and pressure (pinch) roller is what actually drives the tape in the play mode. The reels are used to maintain tape pressure and perform rewind / fast-forward.
