*This radio uses the 120056 chassis with loctal tubes instead of the octal tubes as shown in the schematic. All voltages etc. are the same but the tube pin numbers are different. This change is explained in Riders 17 page 1.
This photo above is as found, an ebay purchase that shipping
cost more than the winning bid! Of course the this radio is not
originally red and fortunately the painter took the time to remove
the back, glass and knobs.
The chassis was completely rewired and all capacitors replaced
and works very well after an odd problem. The radio worked good
on the bench but once installed in the cabinet it would fade away
after 10 or 15 minutes. I took the chassis out and couldn't duplicate
the problem so I reinstalled it and waited for it to fade, when
the volume dropped I took the scientific approach and started taping
each tube and after taping the 35Y4 (rectifier) the volume returned
to full. I then clipped in my Triplett 631
and set the process in motion again. After a few minutes the B+
voltage would slowly drop off, tap the tube with my finger and B+
would slowly rise and fall again.
