Hi, Just acquired a Zenith console model 8S463. It is missing some of the buttons on the righthand side of the dial. These are push buttons for tuning. I have found reproductions for other model numbers, but not for this model. Was wondering if anyone knew where I might find these? I have looked at several sights and searched on-line, but no luck so far. I'm sure I will have more questions once I start looking over the chassis. Thanks for the help,

Rick

That's a hard one. I'd recommend watching ebay. Those parts tend to deteriate. Junker chassis' occasionally  show up.

That was good advice! I found some on ebay and purchased them. Still waiting for them to come.

Any advice on rebuilding the Zenith model 8S463 wave magnet antenna? This one has a lot of bare wire showing... but I'm not sure of what gauge to use for the larger coil or the inner fine wire coil. Is the number of turns more critical than the wire gauge? Or do both have to match? The schematic shows 23 ohms for the inner fine wire loop, but the one I have measures 13.5 ohms. Not sure if this is OK or not. Any advice or ideas would be helpful Thanks,
Rick
