Please note - the belts in this kit ARE NOT suitable for the original CPC 464 model. A kit is available for the original model in a different listing.
A common problem with the Amstrad CPC 464 Plus model these days is poor loading performance from the built-in cassette deck.
This is often due to stretching and wear of the tape mechanism drive belt, or a dirty read/write head.
The old belts stretch over time and now slip causing loading problems. Also, when stood unused for many years, the belts develop a "kink" where the belt has rested unmoving over the capstan. This kink becomes a permanent feature in the belt causing it to jump when the drive is used again.
This is a complete service kit for the CPC 464 Plus model, with new main cassette drive belt, small belt, head cleaning solution, a special pointed, non-abrasive precision cleaning swab for the read/write heads and general swabs to clean the cassette transport rollers and posts.
All you need (except basic tools) to service the cassette deck of your 464 PLUS and restore it's original performance.
The belts supplied are brand-new replacements, as close as is possible to the design and size of the originals, but made from modern, more resilient materials. They have been tested extensively with this machine and work perfectly.
Manufactured in Germany, they are of premium quality. They are not the cheap, terrible quality things from the Chinese belt bundles so widely available now.
