Some parts are still available from Tascam. Belts can usually be sourced
from a couple of suppliers.
However, if the decks haven't been serviced in awhile, you should really
send them to someone who has the proper alignment tools and knowledge to
do the job right.
FWIT: I recall getting a few brand new decks from Tascam back in the day
that were incorrectly aligned right out of the box. I think their QC
towards the end was getting rather sloppy.
