I've found that my recently acquired HP-85 not only has one rotting and one missing printer drive belt, but also a rotting drive wheel in its tape drive. Before I begin to experiment with repair, I thought I'd ask, has anybody else encountered this problem? Does anyone know of a reliable repair method for this tape drive unit?

Check out the replacement belt section in www.russellind.com Their belts are intended for video and audio players, but should be good for a data drive too. They have some idler tires and wheels also, but it is often difficult to remove the original tires from a tape deck without breaking or warping the frame.
