    Am looking for the part number for this ancient pinch roller, or a
    cross referece to other models which used the same deck/roller so i can
    widen my search (I think Pye UK did one machine with that deck). Have
    checked Donberg for the pinch roller vr6462 but they don't seem to have
    it for that model, but they may have another model listed which uses
    the same..... Anyone still happen to have such info. lying around?
    regards, Ben

    Possibly, but will have to look. It's a nasty deck though, the pinch
    roller is on a 'sled' that's driven into position IIRC, and it's a
    bugger to replace properly, I'd get a service manual if I was you.

    Clint, thanks for the reply, but this one is not the deck with that
    awkward pinch roller fortunately. (I know the one you mean, i think its
    called a 'Charley' deck which loads a bit like a betamax formation).
    No, this one is even older, must be one of the first philips front
    loaders. ...don't have it to hand right now but will post a pic next
    week.

    Nope, his machine has the Echo deck. Easy to replace, I think.

    Ahh, so it might be the one with the Panasonic deck? NV370 IIRC, has a
    clear perspex panel over the tape carriage. If it is if you ever need to
    remove the upper drum (head) assembly, be VERY careful to remove all the
    solder and make sure the pins are free before you pull the head drum
    assembly, the rotating transformer is very delicate.

    All by the way anyway.. Just reminiscing about my time as a teenage VCR
    tech. You could do worse than give Wizard Distributors a ring, Empress
    Street Manchester, http://www.wizard-distributors.co.uk

    Nice, helpful guy, if the bit you want is available he'll probably be
    able to help

    Nope that would be the VR6460. The VR6462 has the Echo deck, same as the
    VR6463, VR6560 (top loader), VR6660, VR6860, VR6862.

    I give up, only 37 and my memory has gone already! LOL. Nice trip down
    memory lane despite falling into the drainage ditch at the side a couple
    of times!
