You replace said bad resistor and that should solve the problem.
If not then you need to look at other components.

He doesn't describe what kind of distortion, which doesn't help. Could
just need a head cleaning/alignment, if it's a level problem in one
channel. Back when I was fooling with that stuff, mos decks came in
severely misaligned. I guess people were using Noodles' phony dubbed
"alignment tapes"!
