re: AIWA SD-L22 Compo Cassette

I have the complete Comp 22 including speakers that I am restoring. Cosmetically the units have cleaned up very well. The build quality of these units are excellent. I've got parts in transit to complete this restoration. Does anyone know of a repair manual for this cassette unit?

I found a set of replacement belts at Vintage Electronics.

The speaker surround rubbers on my units were degraded terribly and I found a replacement midrange driver at Parts Express "294-2760 PRV AUDIO 4MR60-4 4" FULL-RANGE 4 OHM"

Here are some preliminary pics of my project:

Hi Lee
Probably too late given its over a year since your post, but I think I have a PDF of the service manual for the SD-L22 tape deck somewhere on my pc. I have the full set up too with speakers - great vintage gear.
