Looking for service manual. Please. Need to replace belts, but need some disassembly help.

re: KD-D2

I have uploaded the service manual, it should be appearing here shortly.

re: KD-D2

Does anyone here possess a service manual or schematic for this model?
My deck gave up the ghost recently, and testing for faults is difficult - if not impossible - without the respective schematic.

re: KD-D2

Hi Evan, just wondering if you were able to trace down the schematic during last year. I need it, too.
