Couldn't help the temptation.
I took back cover off radio side tonight.
Very interesting..................
This set has a separate audio amplifier with PP 6V6 audio output, and, 5Y3 rectifier tube Feeding tha AM, FM radio chassis. The rest of the tubes are in radio chassis. It uses outside am, fm antennas. Has a 12" heavy duty magnet permanent magnet speaker...
The only power cord remaining is coming from the amplifier.
The tv power cord is missing, and, someone added a line fuse, which is blown out, indicating some sort of a power supply short.
I'm not ready to work on this set yet, but, looks to be a very interesting project....
Will need considerable cleaning inside. Everything is very dirty....

Weell, after looking at my variacs, I decided to buy another one. I just paid for it, and, now, must wait for arrival...
Hope it comes safely, and, soon.
After confirmation that it works right, I will try my Philco  46-1201 radio chassis, do some other finishing work, then, get on these gems.

Got radio, and, amplifier out yesterday. Dissappointed. Radio isn't as good as I had thought it would be. Just a cheap am fm radio..Amp is pretty good quality, though..
It's on bench, on que for rebuilding. I'll get pics when I can..............

Thanks to Tony, I found schematic for radio chassis. My amp is a little different, but, radio chassis appears the same. I bought it off ebay.
I should have it in about a week.

I rebuilt audio output, and, power supply chassis.
I will re cap radio chassis. I found at least one original I F transformer burned, and, two RF chokes that have been singed, plus, a slightly burned resistor.
Looks like this radio suffered a major disaster.

Schematic arrived today. Unfortunately, the am I F transformers are not standard, and, that's the one that failed. They do have caps inside. I think I'll take the cooked one apart, and, find out what was burning. No pictures now, as no one seems to be interested. I am doing this for personal notes. If anyone is interested, please let me know, and, I'll start getting more pictures....
I'm hoping the tv won't be as bad....

Goe tv chassis, and, speaker out today, with help.
Been examining it, and, looks good. Flyback appears fine, and, hv fuse isn't blown...A lot of dirt, though. Starting to clean that up....
It will be a project to re cap....
Found a power socket on top of tv chassis that ac power plug from radio amplifier plugs into....
Speaker appears to be in perfect condition...
He had cut wires to speaker from tv. All he needed to do was unplug it from top of tv chassis.
Manny of the tubes, including picture tube are GE. At least one is an RCA.
Properly done, this should be a good set....

Going to start rebuilding the tv this week. Looks like it's going to be fun, and, rewarding when I get it playing again......
It has a very interesting push button tuner, and, matching push button audio tone switches below them on the front.
Set shows a whopping 9" picture on a 10BP4 picture tube....
Ion trap has no magnetism left...
I accidentally broke the horizontal output tube, and, will have to replace that. Someone had replaced several bad paper caps in set, but, those replacements are also paper..
Whoever discovered the shot in tv cut a resistor between two filter cans. I get a two k short on one can, and, a 500 ohm short on other. Filters are history...
I think this set will be a neat piece of American history to get playing again.....

Started cap work this morning, and, ran into my first snag. One of three well hidden caps in h v section. It's a bypass cap to the width coil. It is paper, but, is by mica mold. It didn't blow open, but, had exploded. One end was nearly blown off, paper jacket is singed, and, wax is burned. I took end off, and, foil is black from explosion...
The problem is with my eyes,, and, the lack of room, to do it, I need to take flyback loose. To do that I have to remove cage. To do that, I need to remove bracket holding yoke, and, focus coil. In order to do that, I must first remove picture tube..
Besides that, to test tuner, and, I F tubes, I need to have picture tube out. They are right under it... Oh, boy, this is going to be fun. NOT!!!!!

Here are more........
















Note the small amp chassis is totally rebuilt. That's part of the radio. The cabinet view is to show which one is the Bendix.

Well, today I finally felt well enough that I started rebuilding on Bendix tv.
I've so far replaced the first four capacitors in hv. section, and, horizontal oscillator.
Hope to do more Monday...............

Just repaired another mess. Replaced the .01 screen bypass capacitor on the horizontal out. tube. There was such a mess from someone's poor repairs, that things were shorting out.. I either have to replace an incorrect value 47 ohm resistor with the correct 68 ohm resistor going to B-, or, add a resistor. What a mess!!!!!

Working on replacing caps in vertical circuit. One bad replacement had a physical short to a resistor going to the contrast control. Gee. I wonder what havoc that pulled. That control appears to be damaged...
The short was on the terminal strip. .1 going from circuitry for vert. lin. control to a resistor going to other caps in vertical circuit.
Plus, anther cheap original .1 cap had blown one end off... This set has multiple problems......
I have six more caps in vert. circuit to replace, Then, I go back to hv circuit, then, horizontal oscillator......
I'm starting to make sense out of this set......

Slowly gaining way on Bendix. Replaced another capacitor in vertical intergrator circuit this morning. Still can't do a lot. A lot of back pain, and, tomorrow, I go back for more shots in my back, and, hips for my arthritis.
I'll get pictures as soon as I can............

Here's hoping these shots come with less downtime before the good comes from them.

Today, so far, I've replaced three more capacitors in Bendix. Many more to go, and, still, electrolytics.....
But, I'm making headway...............
