I assumed they recorded on 4 track and mixed it down to 2? Maybe the Op. can clarify this.

Yes the supply caps in the A77 may well be still ok if a bit noisy, I am worried about the trimmers falling off and also and the caps behind the switch board.
Has it been used regularly or been in long term storage?

Tape will vary, there are also a couple of 3m series that are very sticky in addition to those mentioned above. What tape is it?
