AM/FM not working now
« on: January 15, 2017, 06:42:31 PM »
Hello! Prior to grinding down the flywheel and restringing the dial cord (which entailed a lot of cursing and some tears of frustration) my FM tuner was working fine - with hand tuning, i.e., music came thru loud and clear.  Now that I have the flywheel and dial cord in place, however, I no FM sound at all -just the hummmmmmm.  I've checked connections; I see nothing standing out. Any ideas?

Wiggle tubes in their sockets or apply some Deoxit to the pins.   Check that you didn't move some wires or such under the chassis when you removed the flywheel.  Check the antenna connections. Check tubes.

By the way, dial stringing always involves tears and curses.  It's not you.
