I have a friend who has a Pioneer 909 that needs a capstan motor. Anyone got one for sale ? Anyone here that rebuilds them ? anyone know how to source an aftermarket that will take its place ? Thanks Dudes !

I recently had my RT-909 serviced. It had sat idle for about three years. The pinch rollers and capstan drive belt had to be replaced and the capstan motor had a dead spot, so it was replaced, too. The tech charged me $150 for the capstan motor, so that would seem a reasonable price. Be aware - the tech was using a 1996 PRB belt cross-reference book and there is a typo in the book. The correct capstan belt is a FR14.5, and not a FRX14.5. The incorrect belt is 2X the thickness, but correct circumference.

You can put a Tascam BR20 motor in the unit if the servo card is still good or can be repaired. I have put this into the X2000R deck and it worked well.
They do run about $150 but at least it is new and should last a longer time than the worn ones on E bay.
