Awesome! Glad it helped!Quick follow up, I had a noisy eq pot that needed a few more shots of contact cleaner. While i had the bottom off, I did remove the capstan, clean the shaft and used the turbine oil Sweetbeats recommended just as described in this thread. Not only did I clean the shaft and the bore (they didn't seem dirty thankfully) but with the capstan removed, it was much easier to really clean the area in the tape path. It looks almost new and is quiet as a mouse
Sweetbeats, thanks again for walking us through this!
