    Don't forget to take some picts of the "tour" to show us later!

    Btw, Rolf, have you any idea what a nice "minty" GX-270D (with good heads that is ), with both the operator's and service manuals and the original metal take up reel, would go for on the used market ? Just wondering ..

    Thanks!

    Daniel

    PS: I put the belt on the Akai and it works perfect now! Thanks again!

    Yes, I will bring the camera Daniel.
    Great the counter is working on your Akai again.
    About value if you want to sell, I would say between $ 300 - 500.00 with documents and reels.
    I posted one similar Akai yesterday (GX-230 D) for $ 385.00 and it sold same day.
    Not as nice as yours Daniel, minor cosmetic flaws but these are popular models.
    By the way, second bad GX head that I have seen was found on that machine...
    Reverse play-head was dead.
    Are you thinking about selling yours ?

    Had a scratch on the head-cover

    Did you contact Joe about a new head for your Akai ?

    Great, thanks for the info Rolf!

    I was contemplating selling it but still not decided ...

    You mean to say that the one you sold had similar problem head as mine ? Did you replace it ?

    Bye for now,

    Yes, the same yellow color but much worse...
    I had one other Akai here so replaced the whole headstack + relay-board.
    Forward play was fine but not reverse... first I thought the relay was bad, as they can create poor contact on auto-reverse but it was the actual head.
