Capstan Motor for an MTR 90 Mk 2 £600


This capstan motor is fully working and has been serviced by Chris Roberts.

 

An MTR90 in full working condition is a very good machine, it does not have a pinch roller and handles the tape very well it has very low tape tension, the down side is that it cannot deal with old tape very well. Old tape tends to shed oxide and leave residue on the tape guides and heads causing drag, this can cause the capstan motor to stop, if an MTR90 capstan motor is brought to a stop through drag whilst power is applied it causes the motor to burn out. 

 

Other machines which have a pinch roller do not tend to suffer with this problem however using old tape can cause other problems.
