Alignments looked just fine. I also did all the other adjustments to the pinch roller pressure and stroke. All to no avail, same problem with the ATR tape leaving the heads and the walking around, and eventually off, of the tape on the take up reel side pinch roller. Other than spending money on new pinch rollers and going to the trouble to get a new capstan belt, all of which is speculative - I give up and put it all back together, to storage it goes back to tomorrow until someone either buys it or ???
I also think that I have enough vintage gear to maintain for now, maybe adding a 2 track reel to reel isn’t the smartest use of my money, I was just hoping since I already owned this that it would work. Oh well.
Thank you everyone for your help!
