Default Re: Ferranti TC1004. Baptism of fire.

An oddball fault we came across with this era of Ferranti/Ekco sets was for the pitch coating on the width coil,seen on lhs of second picture in post#5, to soften and the coil to slide down its former and touch the chassis.My then mentors cure was to slide the coil back and hold in place with a length of drive cord. This cured the problem so he duly notified 'Trader' in order to help others. The cure was published with the comment that the correct way was to replace the coil with a new one,completely ignoring the fact that the new one could do exactly the same. This fault did not occur on every set and left us with the opinion that the encapsulation was at fault. Peter.
