re: GXC-65D

I first found about this engineering marvel from famous YouTube channel Techmoan, who demonstrates the machine in action even with nice background music, and ever since I was hunting for one of those. I got one in decent shape but so far I could not put it to do the reverse thing, even though it plays tapes normally. Hope that this schematic helps me to find the adjustment...
