Refurbishing my newly acquired A-3340S. Looks like the grease TEAC used to lubricate the pinch roller lifter assembly has hardened up. Will have to remove the capstan/flywheel assembly and a circuit board to get to it. Service manual gives only general instructions for this procedure. There is, however, a helpful video on YouTube about correcting this same factory defect on a different TEAC deck. After I remove the hardened grease I will lubricate the lifter assembly with sewing machine oil. That's the only problem with this machine so far. After I get it going I will look for other issues.
