Hi,The one head wire broke at surface of old black tape.
How should I try to fix this?
Can the old black tape be partially removed to get to the end of the broken wire to solder to?
Is their a solvent to loosen tape?
Could I splice into the loop to the right of broken wire?

Any and all help appreciated, stuck in a spot not familiar with.

Ed

Being careful as a surgeon would, you can carefully unwrap the old tape, keeping in mind that you’ll have to retape it tightly with friction tape later.  Do not nick the wiring or you’ll scrape the nearly clear insulating varnish off of the coil, causing a short.  If you find the end , remember that the magnet wire is insulated and that insulation will need to be sanded or scraped off the part you intend to solder to.  
I hope that helps.

Thanks,Is there something i can put on the tape to soften it to help get some of it off?
It's seems rather dry and hard.

Heat from a heat gun should soften it.
