Default Re: Bush VHF61, my first restoration attempt.

I have cleaned and replaced every thing that was loose, the Chassis is shining and the overall appearance is astonishingly looking like new.

I tried out my home made lamp tester, the bulb did not light at all but the valves glowed. I took from this that the radio did not have any short circuits ? So I gave it full power.

MW and LW came through but not a sound from the VHF. a friend suggests that this may be due to the first valve V1, ECC 85, because this one is not showing much glow compared to the others?

When the bare chassis suddenly sprang to life on the bench, supported by my temporary hook ups because I have no case or dial glass - it was like giving birth!
