Tape Deck Idler Tyre
« on: 23:38, 04 March 19 »
Hi Community,


While the rubber belts for the CPC464 tape deck counter and main drive are readily available, I can not seem to find the tyres for the idler that drives the play wheels etc.


Does anyone know where we can get these or the size of it?

@arkleyjoe


I was also looking for these tyres an I found that the Ehmm Commodore 64 tape decks have these tyres.
These are quite cheap to purchase on Ebay or equivalent in your country.
I picked up some faulty units and used these as Repair parts.


Good luck

Thanks Ray I will look for one of those. I may have some somewhere.


I have found a couple of sites that sell spares for audio equipment and they list loads of types of idler tyres. I am pretty sure if i can find the size / dimensions they will have the correct ones. Unfortunately my tyre is missing so i can no measure it.

I replaced mine using a oring from a Autozone oring kit. Just lightly sanded the edge to make it grip and it works perfectly
