Silvertone 7048 Tuning Mechanism

Posted by Craig Roberts on 04/02/2009 11:03

:I just picked up one of these myself. It is fully intact however not yet operational. I am looking for additional information before I tear in to it and try to rework it. Anybody have any suggestions?
:

:::::I have a Silvertone Console radio that my Grandmother purchased at a garage sale in the late 30's. When I was a teenager (nearly 30 years ago!)I used it to listen to shortwave. It probably has not been pluged in in 30 years. I am interested in restoring this radio myself.
:::::
:::::The tuning mechanism that connects the tuning knob to the air gap tuning cap never worked. When I was a kid there were a few parts and pieces still in the cabinet, a couple of pulleys and string, that has long since disappeared.
:::::
:::::Does anyone have drawings & specs or pictures of this mechansim?
:::::

::::There is a very good service information, with diagram dial cord information right here on this sight. I just downloaded it myself. Be sure to use " real " dial cord, and not just some kind of string.

:::Just looked at the 7049 model and 7046 as well. Both have about the same dial drive, with diagram. I'm sure with all this you can get it working again.
