Sounds to me like a tape transport issue. I've never used an HH but there's I'm sure there's some kind of spring with felt that puts pressure on the tape (similar to echoplex) which helps keep the tape moving smoothly across the heads. If your unit is missing the spring & felt or if it's not applying good pressure then try fixing that up first.

Aside from that, new tape and light lube on the rollers would help too.

g'luck
