reel to reel repair. any tape gurus in here?

I have a tascam 22-4. It was working beautifully till a tape snapped during playback. It had already broke at one time and someone used some clear sticky tape to repair it, but the reel was so old the tape holding the tape together wasn't sticky anymore. anyway, now whenever I play a reel it starts ...

do you have this link: http://www.rane.com/note110.html i think #'s 4, 6 or 17 is where you want to look for wiring depending on the pin out. I was lookin at that, but I've also heard that one might want a transformer somewhere in there like in the second diagram from the top on the rane page - ove...

why might this patch bay not be working as expected?
