:::Thanks for getting back Edd. And everyone else too. I will perform these tasks as soon as the radio is back together again. Knocked off at 10 last night and here it is 3:45 am and I'm back at it. Should be done soon. Couldn't sleep anyway.
::This is my nephews first resto job. A few mistakes were made and I believe I have identified all of them and made the necessary corrections. I did however decide to pull the band switch assembly because it is the only thing I haven't thoroughly checked. Found mostly dirt in this area. I am having some trouble making sense of the pinouts on the "OSC. TRANS." as pictured on the schematic. Bottom center of page. It looks as if pin 1 is at the right then pin 4 is the next pin at the top of the coil with the black dot next to it. Then pin 7 (also black dot) and 5 on left side. Pin 3 and 2 appear to be at the bottom of the coil. It also appears that pin 6 is at the top of the back of the coil. Is this view looking down with the chassis upside down or looking down with the chassis right side up? With the chassis upside down and looking down at the osc. trans my pin 6 is at the bottom. Not as pictured at the top. Once again, what's the view? I can't trust the nephews connections so I really need to determine this. Lots of connections between band switch and these coils. "ANT. TRANS." is much easier to read but once again... What is the view on this? Looking up, down etc.?
::I really do appreciate the help with this and I know we'll get it figured out. Now! Any advice on how to teach a young man patience? I'm telling him that you just can't rush through one of these things.
