Despite my best attempts in 2002,
radio could never be repaired working condition. After the rectifier
had shorted, several other parts went out in the process, including a
candohm resistor and the electrolytic capacitors. The second attempt to
repair this radio included a complete chassis restoration and rebuild.
Besides replacing all of the paper capacitors and restuffing the
replacements into the orange Zenith brand original capacitors, the
electrolytics were replaced, and much of the original wiring had to be
replaced due to bad insulation. Below
