Recently at an electronics shop near me, I found an old Emerson 79A-1 radio without any tubes in it. I looked through a bunch of tubes and found one of the tubes, but still need 4. 3 of them I have found on ebay, but the fourth, a 117v3, I cannot find anywhere. If anyone has any info about this tube then please tell me.

Yeah, I cannot find a schematic for that radio, or any info on that tube. Are you sure it is a 117V3?

No, I am not sure it is a 117V3, but if a tube layout helps then I have a picture of the tube layout that I attached. Emerson 79A-1 radio with strange 117v3 tube Img_2011

That is a 117Z3. Should have no problem finding it.
