Changing stations late Friday evening and the dial started to spin- but the needle did not - and I got stuck on something in between KPFA and KALW...
Took off the cover - and saw that one of the THREE dial threads was broken - but in that there are three - the tuning wheel (attached to the variable capacitor) was still connected to the needle - so I gently tuned in 91.7 - KALW.
Saturday I took the unit out to repair - what a project:
Removed guard- done Friday - now take off the knobs,
Outer Glass faceplate-
Inner glass face-plate - well - not quite off - but disconnected enough to tip forward so that I could get in to replace the thread-
Thankfully I had a second to make sure I got it correct-
I know - I should have taken pictures - if only to share
All back in business again but the dial / needle /station alignment is not quite right - a smidge to the left...
next time I'll do better-
