This Olympic and the Empire was gave to me for free together and they both work with no problem.

Now all i need to do is find some more 8 tracks, i have one so far and that was gave to me also... haha.

Also this sounds a lot clearer than the 8 track on the Empire.

The only thing wrong with this is the lights 1-4 don't light up.

    I actually just found a player and several tapes a few days ago. Happy to share some tapes with you.

    Be very careful what 8-tracks you put in there. Check two things first, the pressure pad(s) and the drive roller. The old style foam pressure pads have a tendency to dry rot. That can be easily fixed. Go to YouTube and type in "8-track repair" and there are some great videos on how to repair them.

    Sorry, I haven't been on here much. I've got several tapes and a player - happy to get them to someone who'll appreciate them. Just let me know how to get in touch directly.
