I've restored this as much as I'm going to.  I've powered it up to reform the caps.  I threw it into a 75 watt bulb and judging by the light I got at least 60 watts out with a 3885 rock.  Problem is the grid drive went too high.  I didn't know how to tune.  I roasted the RF choke in the driver grid.  I replaced all 3 componants in the circuit including the bypass and 18K resistor.  The chassis has some pitting but I polished.  It doesn't look bad at all.  The cabinet is a 9 out of 10.  The neutralizing stub will have to be adjusted I'm sure.  That might be why I could not nail down the grid drive.  I have a 60B along with the VFO and RCVR so this is surplus.  I also am building a 300 watt AM rig and a CW amp so I don't want to mess with this.  By the way, I've replaced the chassis/cage screws with new hardware.  She really shines!  I paid $130 for it on EBag several years ago.  I did modify it with an IEC power socket.  I have many photos.  Just contact me at W9ZSL@yahoo.com and away we go.  Shipping will be about $35.00 depending on our strapped PO.

If you're interested I can throw in a VF-1 free.  I didn't test it and don't want to modify this rig to use it so out it goes.  73!
