TEAC A-4010GSL Rebuild Repair

Rebuilt this beautiful Teac A-4010GSL reel-to-reel tape machine with low hours.  The GSL is the best model of the 4010 series.
I put in a new main drive and counter belt.  Loosened up the seized capstan mechanism.  Adjusted the brakes and aligned the reel platters.  Demagnetized, cleaned the heads and checked azimuth/height.  Checked play and record levels.  Checked wow and flutter @ 3.15kHz for a measurement of .035% @ 7½ IPS, which is very low.
