Wanted: Magnavox imperial tuner
« on: April 24, 2019, 10:14:11 PM »
Good evening, all. Just picked up a beautiful Imperial console. I believe it to be a 1959 model. Unfortunately, the previous owner tossed the tuner and connectors when it "burnt out". Does anyone have an imperial tuner, specifically a 54-05-00? I have also been told it may be a 64 series tuner. I would also need the associated wiring/connectors. The amp is the 81 series with Molex connectors? Looking forward to restoring this beauty!

Thanks!

Dan

You'll likely need the 64 series tuner.  There is an 81 series amp on ebay right now, so somebody has taken an Imperial apart.  You might contact the amp seller and ask if he has the tuner that went with it.  Many times, those are tossed.
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

Thanks for the tip, electra! Funny thing is I have made contact with the seller last night. He doesn't live far from me and he said he has the tuner! Just waiting for him to confirm the model. Thanks for the help!
