The 36512 is stamped on the transistor along with RCA. Other markings include FL and what appears to be 6? I suspect these are germanium. I also need to go back and check the rest of the circuit. More to follow. Thanks for helping.
Email them and sometimes they can help if the NTE search engine can't fine the parts cross reference
Sorry I tried looking the number up in old cross references and OEM books and haven't been able to find it. I also found this RCA data book, didn't see it, but you should take a look:
Do you have a manual for the C-1? It is possible they had RCA select from a base device which may be explained in the manual. And it may be directly out of their application guide:
There is an audio section. You could see if there is a match to the circuit.
And here is a simplified RCA guide:
They never offered that many audio devices, it could be a general purpose device, but I'm just not finding it, sorry.
First, thank you so much for taking the time to do the research. I'm going to go back and recheck the circuits again and leave the power transistors to the end. I may ultimately need to replace them and rebuild the circuit around the new transistors. Thanks for taking the time to help.
