I have a near mint Sansui turntable FR-3060
When I tried to use it the belt was lose
So I got a new belt. With the old and with the NEW belt the speed is way to fast. For the 33.5 speed it’s at 44 plus and at 45 it’s at 52plus speed. I’m using the iPhone app RPM and everything I have found about this app is that it’s pretty close to being spot on
The table even has spare capstan and I installed it, the old one had some old belt rubber on it. And after replacing the capstan the speed is even faster. I can’t find any info online other the people saying they had or have the same problem and the would rap Black electrical tape around the platter belt ring and some had somewhat good luck at getting the speed down to 33.5
I don’t really care to do this band-Aid fix
I like to find out if there is some type of resister or capacitor or something on the motor speed control board that I could replace to get the speed back under control to its proper speed’s.

You, or your tech, will need the service manual here:

I did not look at it but, if there is a control board, rather than a simple motor phasing cap, it is best to replace all of the electrolytic capacitors and check the resistors for spec as well. All of the electrolytics will be at end of life by now. That’s what I do anyway.

There may also be a variable resistor on the board that fine tunes the speed, so if the former gets you in the ball park, you can trim it in the last part of the way.

I also change the main bearing oil when I refurbish a vintage table, clean the entire belt path, lubricate the motor, and start with a fresh belt.

That should get you another twenty years of good service. Best of luck.
