Aiwa Cassette Deck Belt Repair?

    Does anyone know how the drive belts are arranged
    on an Aiwa AD-F800 cassette deck?

    There are two belts, and seemingly
    three things for them to wrap around:

    --a large flywheel that drives the take-up spindle
    (and also engages the mechanism that lifts the
    heads and pinch rollers into place for playback),

    --a smaller flywheel that drives the feed spindle,

    --and the drive shaft of a small motor at the top rear
    of the transport assembly. This motor spins for a moment
    when a cassette is inserted (to take up the slack, I assume),
    and spins constantly when the deck is in Play, Rewind or Fast Forward.

    Both belts have slipped off, and
    I can't figure out how they go back.

    Thanks in advance.
