    I have an old Akai 1800SD (Reel to Reel + 8 trk cartridge) I bought back in the late 60's, a 4000DS bought at a yard sale, and an M9 I got for free. The 1800SD works and functions fine except the 8 trk part is abit messed up. The 4000SD runs well also. The M9 I had to replace the caps that start and run the drive motor, but not much else. Akai built some good machines back then. If the one you have works maybe just replace the electrolytic caps, but not much else.

    Nice!

    Yes I already replaced the motor run cap because the playback speed started to slow down. That seemed to do the trick on that. I also lubed the motor, flywheel, and idlers. I just ordered the parts for a recap on the two audio cards and two other larger caps that are easy to get to (not sure what they do, but I figured while I'm in there). I think it should be good to go after that.
