Default Pye CTM4.

Bought this Pye Continental CTM4 at the NVCF.
The cabinet is a bit rough and examination this evening reveals that the loudspeaker is missing. Also missing are the tuner valves, PCC84 and PCF80. The two PY82 HT rectifiers are missing. Way back in 1966 I replaced the PY82s with a pair of PY81s, a quick fix solution at the time because I didn't have any PY82s in stock.
The electrolytics are dated Feb/Mar 1956. Curiously, the AW36-21 CRT is date stamped R7J, late 1957 or is it 1967?
The chassis is a slightly modified version of the late production VT4. The IFs will be the BREMA values, 34.65Mhz vision and 38.15Mhz sound.
Like the VT4 the tuner is attached to the left side of the cabinet.
