Another rubber capstan turns to mush

Hello All - bah, was just playing with my QIC drive, a WangTek
5150ES (Using dos tar!) and halfway thru the first listing
tape stops. Turns out the rubber what drives the tape has gotten
very soft. Anybody have a box full of cheap replacements?
(pic here: ). I'd like to
keep it working, but paying for depot service ( like ) on a 150Mb drive
is, uh, a questionable investment.
