Full Monty electronic and mechanical overhaul kit for Revox PR99


$714.00 AUD

PR99 FULL MONTY complete service overhaul kits for ALL Revox PR99 reel to reel tape recorders all mk versions 

Over the years customers have asked for a full kit instead of ordering individual sub kits. They also have tended to ask advice on what they should do to fully overhaul and restore their tape machines. So this is what I recommend and if a machine comes into our workshop THIS FULL SET OF KITS is what we fit. It takes into account the most likely components mechanically and electrically that may have degraded over the many years due to sitting idle or being over-worked. So, if you want to  service, restore or overhaul your machine as completely as you can, this is what I recommend.  Please refer to the listings under the specific model section of my store. Please also see the precise details of each sub kit under its listing if you require more information on any particular sub kit.

THE FULL MONTY.  A set of applicable sub kits typically containing:

  • Capacitor and Trimmer replacement kit.  All polar electrolytic, tantalum, non polar motor and suppression capacitors  and all open type trimmer potentiometers 

  • Motor overhaul kit for 3 motors including appropriate lubricant.  New SKF bearings, circlips and lubricant/s for all three motors. 

  • Tape arm damper service kit. - to renew the special damper drag agent /lubricant. Note that teh mk1 and mk2/3 take difefrent types hence the different model kits. The Mk1, 2 or 3 kit includes for both options in case you don't know.

  • Pinch Roller kit. - pinch roller with appropriate low friction PTFE washers and metal shims

  • Tape Guide Kit  - two stainless steel SKF guide bearings with a full set of shims to set tape clearance accurately within the guide. (Includes extra parts needed to convert left guide from rub block to a bearing.)  Note:  Mk3 has only 1 side with a guide bearing

  • Brake drum linings - 1 pair for both reel turntables

  • Tape counter belts  - 2 supplied - white toothed and long black. A77, B77, PR99.  1 supplied for A700 and F/G36

  • Globes for the VU / Power  1 or 2 of each type fitted as spares

  • PCB locator sponge.  To secure the PCB's when fitting the inspection / calibration panel -   (How many people bother ? Well, its pretty important and part of doing the job properly!)

  • Separate Nagravox service sheet manuals detailing how to do it all.  Lots of pictures before / after, suggestions, updates, troubleshooting.

  • Support service to help you in case you have questions, problems, comments. Problems are temporal events in the cosmos of life, "there are no problems only solutions".

  • Transistors Spares Pack. (new from 2018)   The "Full Monty" now also includes a useful semiconductor spares pack which has a selection of repair replacements for most of the BC type NPN and PNP audio transistors as well as 1N diodes. This is not for replacing all transistors - only those that may be faulty or suspect. (replacing all transistors is completely unnecessary). The kit is particularly suitable for all Revox A77, B77 and PR99 machines AND is also a very useful kit to have as part of your electronic spares for most Revox and Studer equipment.

WHICH KIT?  Because so many machines had boards interchanged in their life, it is suggested you get the Mk1, 2, 3 kit which will cater for all 3 Mk Types.
