    Does anyone know what the tape tension (oz.) is supposed to be for a JH-16/JH-100. Also, where are the adjustments for it? I have, what seems to be a complete "JH-16 manual" AND a second "JH-100 manual" that contains electrical cal and board layouts ONLY(no mechanical. cal). The problem is that when the "complete" manual references specific pots and whatnots, the numbers are incorrect. (Maybe it is for an older or newer transport?) When I look at the board layouts from the second manual, the numbers correlate to the actual markings on the analog torque board.

    If this helps? The serial number tag says; its #178, and was manufactured on 10-30-74...

    Please beware that this is my first tape machine...
    Maybe someone knows of a good calibration resource that would help out a new guy...
