O.K. Just call me crazy........

Post by Bill Cahill on Mon Nov 02, 2015 10:14 am

Alright, I've had it for twelve years, and, was in no hurry, May not even go very far on it. But, I dug out my GE 10T1 Locomotive tv, and, put it on the bench. I think I'll replace missing filament resistor, a batch of electrolytics, check seleniums, and, try it. If it shows good signs of hope, including a raster, I'll rebuild it.
Wish me good luck.
Bill, yes, I'm crazy, Cahill

This morning I've so far replaced the first 3 cardboard filters mounted on bottom side of chassis. I have one more to go there, another cardboard one for input under chassis, two cardboard filters on top, two three section cans, also.
Long way to go. Right now, I just want to get power supply working to see if set is fixable.

I've now replaced the last two cardboard filters under the chassis. I have to remove picture tube to clean things up, and, replace bad caps above.
While replacing filters I discovered someone had replaced one paper capacitor on one of the boards. Two power resistors in power supply had also been replaced.

When I removed picture tube I found out selenium rectifiers died in a big way. Smoke, and, sparks...........
TV was full of soot, dirt, filth, and, dog hair...
I tried an idea. I used a paper towel soaked with 98 percent rubbing alcohol. Set is now almost completely clean. Even the wiring is like new.. Still have more cleaning to go, though. No writing came off the tubes, parts, or, chassis. It works well.....

We use the high content, it may be 98% alcohol at work. We use it to clean computers and does really good at cleaning. You can't beat gojo on some stuff as well.

Yeh. The cleaner I have is ninety eight percent alcohol, also. I'll be back on this project when I get a few finished.
I have a few more filters to go, filament resistors, seleniums, and, a burned out input resistor to rectifiers.
This set went out with a bang.
Picture tube checks good.
10BP4.
