You could give Funky Junk a call and see who they know / recommend.

Or Rod Thear at Thear Technology.

The problem is getting an old geezer with ample experience and all the required kit who is prepared to visit the machine.

Test tapes, audio analysers / scopes, tension gauges, transport components, bearings, shims, thrust washers, cleaning and lubing products; all that has to be decanted from the bench, packed up and transported.

It is much easier and less expensive to move the entire machine. There are more people who'll do a proper workshop job of it than risk showing up with all the gear but missing a crucial component.

I've repaired a few A827s, but not transport or tape path issues. Shorted tants, duff electrolytics, broken joints on card connectors. I won't pay £500+ for test tapes that only get used occasionally.
