The Fine Things are Always Hand Made
Question for anyone with AW15 restoration experience.
Have a nice 15 (late) and had the radio working and tuning the broadcast band until the band switch started to loosen.
The set screw on the collar just before the shaft enters the gear box became loose. (Don’t touch anything if this happens to you!)
Needless to say, exact position for the turret, the antenna contact points eccentric cam in the can above the chassis as well as the disk with multiple contact points where the tuning shaft enters the chassis is in question.
From the documentation, I think the turret position can be located (empty coil on the right, and silk covered on the left). Problem is that the eccentric cam in the can on top doesn’t line up correctly with both points closed when I line up the turret. The exact position of the cam for both contacts to be closed seems to be a pretty specific location. Since the shaft for the turret is slotted, there is no obvious adjustment there.
I suppose I could un-tighten the nut holding the cam lon top of the chassis and relocate it, but I would then be assuming it had been moved out of position from factory.
The correct position of the wafer disk on the front of the chassis where multiple contacts are located needs to be positioned as well. There is a hexagonal hole where the shaft fits, so I guess there are only 6 possible positions to try when the broadcast position, turret, and antenna contacts are in place.
Maybe someone can give me a head start?
