WTB: B/W Magnavox VHF Tuner--circa 1961

The part number on the tuner is 340007.1

The tuner I have is working, but the fine tune slugs are damaged and loose. I've done a temporary repair using fine pieces of paper to shim the slug sleeve enough to keep the slug from falling out.

I can also use a parts tuner. This tuner runs with 6V filament tubes.

Thanks for looking!

BUMP--

Not kidding about the tuner. A parts tuner would be great. The entire tuner coil assembly comes out as a single piece. The one I have is working, but I know it won't last this way.

I remember seeing this tuner in TONS of early '60's Maggies. Where are they now?

Hello Bruce. I scrapped a Magnavox combo simular to the one you a working on. It's a newer model , but magnavox didn't change their B&W models that much. It's a standard coil turret tuner. You can have the whole cluster as it has UHF too. Please reply. Thanks, Dave.

Hi Dave! I got the tuner, and your address. I will be sending you $$ as soon as tomorrow.


Not sure how this will work on my set, yet, but, stranger things have happened!!

Hey Bruce. There should no reason that tuner wouldn't work, barring shaft length or other mechanical issues. The tube compliment is different but parallel 6.3 volts. Earlier tuners used 6CG8/6GK5 while this one uses 6HB7/6HQ5 . 41MHZ IF. B+ and AGC the same. Best of luck. Dave
