Admiral 16R12 tv

Minor repair job. This is a 16" rectangular bakelite table model tv.
The case is nice, and, no cracks, or, chips.
I got it a few weeks back. It had been worked on twenty years ago, but, one of the electrolytics was failing. Last known three weeks ago this set was playing before delivery from Michigan.
I'm getting ready to try this set soon.
Keep your fingers crossed. Pictures will be posted.

Admiral with power transformers, simpler sets like Silvertone, Bendix, etc., are all good starters.....

Well, you asked for it, so, by popular demand, here is what I have done so far. Mind you, most of the work was done before me. I replaced that last electrolytic can under the I F strip, and, next to the vertical output tube, in this case, a 6SN7.
Here are 3 views showing both what I"ve done, and, what was done in the past.





More will come as I get it more finnished.

I got this TV in "working" condition. It was unrestored with a very weak CRT. I got an NOS RCA for it and stuffed the electrolytic capacitors. All electrolytic and paper capacitors were replaced. Some resistors were off by a little but they were mostly OK.

I was actually watching it today. I need to take it out and do some component freeze spray because after about an hour, the vertical will roll slightly. But the control will bring it back. These are nice televisions to work on...
