You don't need a calibrator for these transoceaonics. Usually, a good re capping,, electrolytics, and, correctly replace selenium rectifier, and, a good set of tubes should pretty much bring set back to factory specs with little, or, nothing other than minor adjustments of I F's, and, oscilators...

Thanks for the reply,I have ordered some electrolytics for a bit of hum in it but it seems to be playing quite well. I live next door to a large hospital and get lots of noise at the lower freq. I was planning on using a dc to dc inverter but now I am thinking about using batteries for the A&B supply.I gave all my old tv equipment away about 35 years ago but now i wish i had kept some of it. It looks like this will be a fun forum to hang out on.   See Ya Mike

Thanks. Please be sure to replace all paper capacitors in it as they will pull down batteries. These old capacitors get leaky, and, short out.
Big problem with paper caps. Be sure to use proper factory rated caps.
I use good quality yellow wraps. Some of the caps are critical on placement.
Don't put new electrolytics parallel with old ones, as the old ones will likely break down. I would highly recommend totally replacing electrolytics.
