Firstly, and I can't emphasize this enough; I went on Utube and found a video as to how to do the belt replacement on this exact Model. Then with the help of my wife, we just proceed step by step. We took digital photos of the electrical hook-up to be sure to reassemble to electrical correctly; as well as the capstan/idler belt threading. Getting the new belt on to the drive capstan was the hardest part. I loop it over the drum while it was pulled out about 6". I then reached through the drum to tread it around the capstan/idler. Then I moved the drum into place, and SLOWLY wound the drum by hand CW 2 turns, to give the capstan a chance to do the final alignment of the belt/drum. No problemo!
