Starting on my (Hippo) Philco 46-420 code 125. Nostalgia only goes to code 121 and the electrolytics are different so I wonder what else is differenent. I have the chassis open and it all looks pretty straight forward and all the caps are marked with values. I'd just like to have a schematic that matches up for my files and records. Anyone have one you's like to share?

Thanks,
Ben

Ben,

Maybe we can help each other out...just looked at my "hippo"....model 46-420 code 125!

Been sitting over a decade due to time and lack of schematic.

I'd like to compare notes. I foolishly didn't record some connections in the filter circuit so it's been sitting a-mess. Between both, maybe we can figure things out?

The biggest difference I believe is the 50B5 output tube where others used an octal style tube.

Code 128 uses a 35Y4 rectifier and a 50B5 output tube

There are other differences, and, I don't have the schematic to fix mine.. My has a four wire antenna, and, one different tube, yet,, uses the octal output, and, the 35Y4 rectifier...........

Sorry guys, I have not had a chance to re-visit this information. I have not had time to touch a radio since the first of May. I've been re-modeling my mother's house since pop past away. I hope to get back to radio repair by late fall but that is "iffy" at best. I'll jump in every now and then to see if I have anything to respond to. Catch up with you later.
Blessings,
Ben
