"Troy - Take a look at ebay item #202180902748. The set is rough, but it has the speaker you need to complete your set. I'd consider buying it, using the speaker and parting out the remainder.  Kent"

"Troy- - dial insert - your receiver has the additional (2nd) antenna post, so choose the "clear" one (not really clear, but has the shorter color bars). Change to this version plastic insert was one of several mid 1936 changes to the 7…"

"The 83V is indirectly heated whereas the 5Z3 is directly heated.  The EH Scott radio laboratory recommended replacing the 83V tube with a type 5Z3 on a temporary basis during WWII when 83V tubes were unavailable.  If you intend to use the…"

"Your cabinet is the PLYMOUTH. Yours looks very nice, with the original cloth, too. Is one of several cabinets the buyer could select. Yours was $25 according to my Jan "31 price list. You mention the TASMAN - it cost $18.75. Others cost more…"

"The difference between5z3 and 83v is the current capacity of the tube. You should be ok if you use a variac. There are 2versioms of the 83. The 83 is a mercury vapor type. The 83vis a regular high vacuum type. Tubes are still available. I have a…"

"Thank you Kent-I like the prospect that my Allwave 23 was a Christmas present/purchase for someone in 1936.  Goes well with the season now, when I bought it myself. Was serial # S 580 already in your database without the warranty tag…"

Thomas Day replied to Troy Taylor's discussion Modified Allwave 23 questions
"Troy: Kent is essentially correct, but you do have a field coil speaker. You may also have the original output transformer in the added box. The added 500 ohm resistor pack probably compensates for the fact the new speaker has a different value for…"
