Transoceanic Repair

Post by Comet64 on Tue Aug 23, 2016 1:53 pm

Hello,

I have a Zenith Transoceanic that I would like to have repaired/overhauled. I thought I read somewhere on this forum of a person or company that specializes in this. I have done a quick search, but have come up empty handed.
I am somewhat competent on electronic repair- but I believe trying to get my "fat-fingers" in this radio would cause more harm than good, it is way too nice of a Radio to risk this Neutral

Any recommendations would be appreciated,

Thanks!

First, welcome to TRF! Stop by and post often.

My suggestion would be to contact an old radio club in your area. There might be someone there kindly disposed to your situation. Good luck.

Be advised this is the result of a search and I've not done any business with this concern.

My dad had a '64 Comet, 170 six & 2-speed.

Neat little car!

Thanks to all for the advice-  I bought this a few years back, from a guy who used to work for me, (his brother now works for me- it's a small world after all..).

It belonged to their Father, who worked for Cincinnati Electronics (formally AVCO, before that Crosley Radio)  a defense contracting corporation here in Cincy that evolved into L3 Communications.
As the pictures show, it is in near mint condition, considering the age- under the cover it still has the charts, directions etc.
I tried to bring it up with a Variac, but nothing- hopefully something simple, along with re-cap etc, it should be a great performer.

Great to hear about the Comet-  mine had the 260 V8, and the dual range C-4 3 speed automatic.  I really miss it, but can't keep 'em all Sad
