went ahead and pulled the chassis. do not see anything burned up, the PT has continuity, no B+ rail is NOT shorted, but one fuse was open (one of the two mounted on the top of the chassis.

tube sockets and pins show rust, hope the humidity will come out of the flyback. I have it inside now so hoping the AC will begin to dry it all out. Its going to be a while before I work on it but at least I have something t look at while hand heals up.

I still don't get how the CRT removes, it looks like there are 4 bolts on "fingers" that engage the plastic cover. I will re read the service manual when I get that far. The yoke plastic is disintegrating, but I think I have seen folks post on a fix for that.

I am tempted to pull the B+ fuse and see how the PT checks out...

its going to need a bit of work, besides the busted CRT (guns looked perfect), no back, its also got some rot on the bottom of the feet maybe 3/4 inch. I am thinking either cutting off and grafting on some new back feet (the front is ok), or trying some of that epoxy fillers. Also missing the door pulls (I have the top but not the main door pulls). I was pretty pissed when I say the busted CRT but that's the way it goes sometimes....

did not have my metered variac handy I decided to throw caution to the wind and plugged it in. filaments came right up, B+ at the 5U4 cathode (fuse out) was 412vdc so so far so good. there are a bunch of paper caps so it would be pointless to go any further with out replacing those. I will check the filter caps, they are mostly single or two sections which is nice. I will take them out of the circuit and see how they check out for leakage, reforming them with the cap tester as I go.
