A good friend gave me a ZENITH H-845 AM/FM receiver from 1964. It receives somewhat and I will restore and align as much as possible. At the least I will do a re-cap and there are a few project restorations and data sheets online so this should not be too much for my tired old brain to handle. Overall it looks to be in good but dirty condition and I removed the back just long enough to see the typical film of dust and cobwebs.
Yay, the parts for this project arrived yesterday from AES. Now I can start burning my fingers on my somewhat trusty cheap soldering iron. I will add the parts to the component list later but for now here is the packing slip. The #45 lamps were a box of ten so now I have extras as I only needed two.
Well now, lets see what we have here. Generally a clean chassis with no signs of rust. Some dust and a couple of cob webs but looks good. Some tubes have been changed over the years as three Zenith tubes were replaced with Sylvania types. The Selenium rectifier is going to have to be replaced with a modern and safer diode and the pictures show all the waxy paper caps to be replaced on the under side.
