Default Where can I find belts for Hitachi D-E66 Tape Deck?

Hi forum members, need your help to locate belts for Hitachi D-E66 Tape Deck, and advice to solve a problem with the FF/RW mechanism.

I have had it sitting around for several years, unused due to broken pulley belt, and the flywheel belt has become gooey and lost its tension.

Recently I decided to have a go at repairing it, but need some expert help.

The deck does not rewind nor fast forward, it plays OK with some temporary belts (laggy bands - I guesstimated the sizes) but there is a noise, probably due to the tension of the pulley belt being incorrect. I have not tampered with the mechanism other than replacing the belts, but it used to work fine until the belts perished.

Any help or advice will be appreciated.
