Teac a4010 capstan motor and pinch roller

I can't seem to get it to engage. The capstan motor turns freely by hand. It has a lot of intertia which I suspect is normal as it will turn for a minute.

The pinch roller will not engage although I can move it in and out by hand.

I have downloaded the manual just looking for a shortcut. Maybe clean it up.

It has not been run in 25 years.

TIA

I used the manual I down loaded on here. This unit has two problems. The belt had disentigrated into black sticky rubber particles. The linkage that drives the pinchroller was gummed up now working.

Going to get a new belt get it running and digitize my music on tapes then sell it.

I got it going hooked it to my amp and even my 40 year old tapes sound good.
