Forgot to add that both my Teacs - a 3340 and a 3440 - worked fine when I got them and were in equally as good a condition when I sold them. The Tascam 38, after being assembled from two units (packing issues on the first one...) ran fine and is still doing duty in Nashville. No restoration - just selection of best original parts from two decks.
There's a fine line between a numerator and a denominator...

I am the 2nd owner of my Sony TC-458. My supervisor in the AF in Japan bought it new in 1971. The only thing I've done to it really was take it all down to remove waxed out grease/regrease, new belts, new brake felts and azimuth adjustments. It still plays and records like a champ. The power switch is starting to falter a bit (flickering lights when first powered up), but aside from that all original. I'm thinking I shouldn't be bragging about it though cuz now that I have, I'll have major rebuild on my hands

I've noticed a lot of Teacs do that. Especially if they've been sitting a while. My 2300s always has. Just exercise the rubber pinch roller up and down with the side of your index finger a few times in the Stop or power-off position first, and you'll be fine.

My 1979 Teac A2300SD still going strong even on original belts. 1983 TR-3000 works perfectly after belt change. But it only has about 150 hours of time on it.
