1. After installing the specified parts in the appropriate
A. Snug screw
gently, then back off about two
turns. This makes the heads nearly horizontal.
B. Snug screw

This will roughly position the tape in the center of the
For tightening screw
use a home make screwdriver,
filed down to the specifications shown below. The same
screwdriver can be used to tighten screw (1).
2. Make sure that the moving part of the erase head
assembly moves smoothly around the pivot of screw
and also confirm that there is enough clearance (A) in
the play mode.
3. Next, make an operational adjustment. Load a C-1 20
cassette and adjust the height of the erase head by turn-
Watching that the tape does not curl at
the guides of both the combination and erase heads is
indication of proper adjustment.
