Default Silvertone 6179 Radio Repair

Hi Everyone,

Here is a link to the thread

Basically I got a US silvertone streamlined midget radio for display, it was sold as electronically untested (Crackled but no reception) in the States, albeit it does look like it was restored recently. I tried it here but stupidly introduced it to UK voltage (240v) and no doubt may have burnt out some resistors/bulbs.
I am wondering if anyone with experience with radio sets, specifically US ones could give it a test and replace any fried components? Ideally, I would like it to stay as original as possible as the valves are dated 1939.

I like in York, North Yorkshire.
