Whats wrong with it?

No play or ff.

Open it there is some metal wheels that are driven by a rubber band, replace if missing or damaged

Old tape decks are almost always missing belts. Replace them. Old ones may be present but loose.

Those things only work one way. Go to a flea market and get a couple of a similar era and start butchering them and replacing parts until you get one that works.

hijacking thread for my own problem:
I have a tape deck that's missing a screw to maintain the tape head in place. How do I go about finding a properly fitted screw?
>>
>>945704
find a similar screw?
>>
>>945704
take a similar one out and find the same one
>>
>>945704
probably too old to find a pdf manual online. I'm not sure where you would look.

>>945720
>>945706
how does one "find a similar screw"?
take its measurements, somehow measure the threading and enter it in some sort of magic database?

>>945733
It's some sort of rare model, early nineties, which doesn't appear more than twice on google
>>
>>945738
Only a handful of companies in the world ever made consumer electronics, everyone else just rebranded. Go to a flea market and get a few of a similar era and start butchering them. You'll find the right screw eventually. Probably on the first try.
