WTB: Zenith Convergence yoke (25LC20 chassis...)

Ok, I know I'm like everyone else, I'm looking for one of these because the stupid plastic broke apart

Anyone got one?

Or, if you've got a busted plastic one without the coils in it, that might work too - I've got a friend with a 3D printer and I might be able to get him to duplicate the thing.

ISTR there was an aftermarket replacement that had the coils encased in red, green, blue cases and worked very well - I'll take one of those. I'm not looking for a 100% origional look here, just a decent picture on screen

Thanks!

I have 3 zenith tubes with the coils. They are 21 inch round screens. Junked the chassis. Can you get me a picture?

Ok, here it is. I guess I just need the plastic cloverleaf part, but I'll take the whole thing. Yeah, the wiring really IS that nice and clean on that set. It's in pretty nice condition...

Good condition ? Hell no, new condition ! Almost unbelievable
for age. Not an old dried up set. I dont know how Zenith got
away with using the high quality hookup wire and stay in
business. Nobody else I remember came close. Most wire near
any heat would dry up & crumble............


BTW Have I lost my mind or is something backwards on the set

Motorola was another firm that used a little better quality wire in their products. It was probably Belden.
IIRC, they used silicone hi-temp insulation on the horizontal output plate cap, as well. Zenith did too.
RCA, didn't have to worry about wire quality on their flybacks. They never lasted that long.
The CTC15 and clones would burn the wiring and the tie strips around the large voltage dropping resistors, under the hi-voltage area.
The replacement Zenith cloverleafs were made from a better green plastic.
IIRC, they were rather cheap, like a buck or less.

If that is a picture of your damaged one in it's current condition then I think a full on replacement might be overkill. A crack or a decent sized piece busted off can often be fixed with super glue (trust me, I've done it before).

Super glue is fine for most plastics, but some it's not compatible with, like eyeglass frames. Also, items that are under tension or torque.
The only recommendation, I would have, is to find another type convergence cloverleaf, from a newer Zenith or another make roundie.
