Not very many were in service in the first place. I don't remember
any reliability problems.
At Motown we had four 1" 8 tracks that were replaced by Ampex
MM-1000s within weeks of their installation. We also had the
prototype that we used for remotes and 4 pairs of mono and 1/4" 2
tracks that we continued using. The Scully 8-track was THE machine to
have for only a couple years and the Scully 4 track only had its
heyday .for maybe 3 years before that.
