TUBE CAR RADIO REPAIR

I have been repairing Tube Type Car Radios for the past 30 years. I repair all makes and models.


REPAIR VS RESTORATION

       I repair equipment and do not perform restoration.
       Restoration involves placing new parts within the shells of the old parts, or placing new parts inside of moulds of old parts that are painted to look like the old parts.
       Repair involves installing new parts under the chassis. All exposed parts on top of the chassis stay in place (are not removed).

DEFECTIVE COMPONENTS

       Defective components shall be replaced.

CAPACITORS

       All filter and paper capacitors shall be replaced.

TUBES

       All tubes will be tested for Emissions and Leakage (shorts). Bad tubes shall be replaced.

CIRCUIT MODIFICATIONS

       I will not replace tube circuits with a solid state circuit board.
