Variations in the tube line-up of this
chassis 6C05 will be found; a single
chassis may contain octal, lock-in, and
miniature button tubes. lf an original
tube is replaced with an altegnate, the
socket must also be replaced. Alternates
that may be found are as follows:
Original Alternate
In case the oscillator shifts, replace the
220-ohm resistor(R5) with a 1000-ohm
' resistor, and if r.he,oscillatbr drops out at
the low end of the band, disconnect Rl
(10,000 ohms) from the negative return
and connect it to the cathode of the con-
verter. See the schematic on page 15-28
0 Riderlt Volume XV.
If audio oscillation occurs disconnect
the 00005 pf capacitor (C14) from the
negative return and connect it to the
cathode of the 35L6GT output tube Take
out C21 from the plate to the cathode of
the 35L6GT If oscillation occurs at 910
kc, change the capacitor C5 in the nega
uve return to the chassis from 0 05 pf to
0 1 pf In the event that there is hum,
oscillation, or poor sensitivity check for
grounded tuning capacitor frame This
can be corrected by inserting cork or rub
ber pad between rear capacitor frame and
chassis this pad should be cemented in
The letter V (SCOSV) indicates that
an aluminum chassis is used
If hum and mlcrophonics are found in
this chassis check for a grounded tuning
capacitor frame to the cabinet ventilator
plate Distortion and poor sensitivity
are usually caused by a short circrut be
tween turns on the loop Sometimes poor
sensitivity and failure to operate on the
low frequency end of the dial is due to
the oscillator oorl which should be re
placed If uncontrolled oscillations occur
solder a 470 000 ohm resistor across the
secondary of the lirst x f transformer
Zenith Chassis BCOI
If Butter is experienced when the set
is on fm it can be eliminated by in
stalling a 20 ,uf 150 volt capacitor (Part
No 22 1635) and two 0 25 watt resistors
one 2.2 megohms (Part No. 63-600) and
the other 1000 ohms (Part No. 63-583),
as shown in the accompanying partial
schematic. The complete schematic of
this receiver will be found on page 15-71,
72 of Rider? Volume XV.
A rushing noise when the volume con-
trol is turned to minimum is caused by a
poor connection from the grid element
to the grid cap of the 6S8GT discrimina-
tor tube. A hot iron and a little llux
on the grid cap will remove the high-
resistance solder joint.
lf the f-m oscillator drifts, check for
a red dot on the oscillator tuning slug
wire. If the wire is unmarked, replace
with one which has a red dot. ~

A single chassis may contain octal,

following alternates may be found
