Tascam capstan motor dilemma!

Hey folks, the motor on my early version Tascam 44 just died on me and I'm shopping for a replacement... I've been told that several motors can work in the machine as long as they meet certain specifications.... The part # on my current broken motor is EM 1446, I'm wondering what other motors could work as a replacement? I've found 2 on eBay (pics attached) that might be fit, but I don't know for sure. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Reel deep thoughts...
Hi. You’re positive the motor is dead and not the servo assembly?

have you tried powering the motor straight from a +24V DC supply to see if it spins up?
