    Glad that's got it going! I don't know what the small motor thing is either, it might be some kind of 70s rotary encoder or something, but it did look a bit too anaemic to run a deck like this all by itself.

    It ends up that the "motor" is just a sensor that lets the tape deck know when the tape has reached the end of its reel and auto-reverses it based on the user-selected setting.
