There is one defect I'm not sure how to address. Namely the tuner seems to have a blown balun. On it's stock tuner I can get my agile modulator without any thing hooked to the antenna terminals very clearly, but I can barely tune in a DTV box properly connected to the antenna terminals.

This led me to a fascinating discovery...I wanted to try another tuner, since I seemed to recall a similar tuner in my junk tuner box, and after some digging I found what looks like a factory correct UHF VHF tuner combo with space command, and bezel!

Part of me wonders if it is for a later model though since the UHF tuner does not use a tube like the chart indicates, and the bezel is a different color and font wise from what is on it.

There is a part of me that is considering getting the space command parts and retrofitting it to use those tuners....
