Motorola 8 Track

My '72 International has a Motorola 8 track and the drive belt has broken. Does anyone know where I can find parts for this?

I don't know if it works (because we don't have any 8 tracks to try it), but we are about to take ours out of our 1979 Sovereign. If you want to email me at SueStocks22(at)gmail(dot)com you are welcome to have it if you cover the packing and shipping.

8 track

I appreciate the offer but I'm going to try and fix this one, it just needs a belt. I'm not an 8 track fan, just want to get it going for nostalgias sake.

The way I remember them is that they didn't work very well and ate the tapes go disc, a lot less trouble and they work... My 2 cents

Check local Pawn shops. If having an 8 track is that important you might have to buy one for parts. One local pawn shop has a case full of players and tapes. Also classic car parts suppliers might be another source. Good luck.
