Thank you for the info. I checked the electrolitics with an ESR meter and apart from those I have mentioned all appeared to read O.K.
If the trouble is in the preamp circuit how is it that the output from the radio side is crisp and clear, and would the trouble in the preamp circuit affect the brake solinoid on the supply reel of the tape recorder?

Hi Carl L,
Unable to rate your advice as I am still waiting for a reply to my follow up from your original advice.
Thank you Carl L.
I will do as you say and get back to you once I have tried your advice.
It will probably take me some time as I don't get down to my workshop every day. Being retired and my wife is not well I have to bide my time when I can do these things. I have a fully equipped workshop for when I worked on TV, video and radio.
