I recently bought an Akai gx 4000d for only 20 dollars but it seems the capstam sleeve is not on the front so i took the head cover off and found one device that does twist off and does fit the capstam but i just want to make sure its the right one. Can someone please explain or better yet upload a pic of exactaly where it would be at? This is my first reel to reel and I am not even sure how to put the reels in,can someone also upload a pic of the head cover off and tape going through it so i can see it? I tried downloading the manual but it is not downloading for some reason,thanks for any help on this.
