Default Bush & Ekco LOPT's ?

I have just been given 3 off LOPT's which I shall be offering to Members FOC once I know more than what I think is the make.

Could those who know these things, tell me what I have.

Pictures attached which show alternative views of the transformers.

Hi,
The first one looks very much like one from an Ekco T368, which probably fitted other sets of the same period too. They are normally completely rotten, the plastic degrades leaving the windings dangling in mid-air. I made a new housing for the one in my set which you can see the restoration of here. Not sure what the others are.

Regards
Lloyd

I agree with Laurdys .The first is an Ekco T368 and the Bush are TV62 series,
If there is a hat I would like to put my name in for the Ekco LOPT please.

I am pleased to say that the first 2 transformers have been identified and found a new home. What about the pictures 4&5. Which Bush is the LOPT from?

I think I’ve just identified it, Bush TV22A / TV24A! have a look here to see several shots of one on the chassis. I’d be happy to give that one a home, if you don’t want it! I have a TV22 with a dead LOPT, and it’s be interesting to see if the set can be modified to take the later transformer.

Regards
Lloyd
