Anybody have any tips for re-biasing this machine? Thanks!

EDIT: I read re-biasing as rebuilding, do not really recall the procedure, been to many years. Original post left below.

Patience and determination.

They are are alot of work and not the easiest things to work on. I may have the service manual boxed up if you need it, will need to dig about though, have a box of parts as well left over from the parts machine.

They are fun machines, kinda wish I still had it.

I had a Model 80 for a while that was basically half of an E 16 if I recall correctly. I seem to remember accessing trimpots with a small screwdriver on the bottom of that machine, but that was 20ish years ago and I might be wrong.

You should be able to find manuals online, and I'd guess an MRL tape shouldn't be THAT hard to come by?

Good luck! I finally realized I lack the time or inclination to keep up my 80-8s and downloaded Reaper. :/ Someday I'll come back around to tape.
