8 track player

I was wondering if anyone knows of a place that can repair or replace my original 8-track player for my 72 Ambassador???
It sounds like it is playing, but no audio. The radio and speakers work fine. The fuse is fine. Any other suggestions??
Thanks.
Alex

My 8 track was in the same condition when I got my A/S.Mine was in a side cabinet that fliped down. I thought it was prety kool to have an old tape player.I took it apart and found that it had a rubber type belt that drove the tape player. I cleaned the pully where the old band had roted away and used a rubber band to get it to run.I put a tape in it and I was listening to Crobsy,Stills&Nash! One problem, the old tapes began to fall apart and some were just plain bad sounding, somethings from the 70's are just better left to our memories. A new am/fm/cd player is on my list.

I've got an 8 track from a 75 Ambassador if someone needs one.

But I don't even know if it works as I have no 8 track tapes to test it with.

8 Track

I had a 8 Track in my 29ft. 1977 International, took it to car toys and had it replaced with a A real nice set up. I did not change the speekers. I had them put in a cd player and changer also XM satalite raido. I like to get off of the beaten path and with the XM satalite Radio I can listen to what I want, when I want. Works great. The thing is you have to invest a little money in it.

Sadly, I have to agree. I picked up a nice, home stereo 8-track player at a yard sale specifically to dub a pile of old 8-track tapes I had onto CD.

After cleaning the unit, and installing new belts I sat down and went through every tape in the pile. None of the tapes worked well enough to do anything with.
