So my cpc ate a tape, opened it up and foundthese few issues inside. A small belt broken, this other rubber piece that im not sure where its from, and looks like there should be a belt where the tape counter is but there isnt so i gather that that is where the belt went around.
I was wondering if anyone could point me into the right direction for fixing it + what some of the stuff is for e.g that rubber piece. Thanks


Edit: had issues with uploading the photos so i put them on imgur

Edit 2 found a second rubber piece exact.same size. Both also have a break down yhe middle

The belt is just to connect the tape counter, it doesn't effect the general function of the drive. The other rubber part is your problem. It's the tyre from the centre idler. Take a look at the post here, you may recognise a similarity: https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/technical-support/unknown-command/msg159753/#msg159753

Would you happen to know where i can order one of these? Tried checking out the person he mentions in that post however nothing comes up, i would assume either the store nolonger sells them or they dont ship internationally.
Or an alternative to it even if that is possible?

No idea, but they are pretty much standard parts. Try to find an old deck with a similar wheel and "borrow" the tyre from it.
