WTB Zenith 63-10263 Volume Pot

There's a good size dead spot in mine, so it has to go. New or used, if it works, I want it.

It might be helpful to mention what model set this is used in. Not to many of us have Zenith part numbers etched into our memory.

It's for a '74 Zenith Avanti w/space command remote using chassis 25EC58.

What is wrong with yours? Pots of that vintage can easily have the element swapped, and the switch can always be replaced. Is your shaft munged or broken?

Cheers,

Cheers,
Most of the mid volume section is bad. I'll start out fully CCW and turn it CW. It starts as it should, slowly raising the volume. Then it starts to get muffled for about a 1/4 turn and then gets suddenly loud as it gets out of the bad section. So most of the area I do my listening is muffled. I've cleaned it twice with Deoxit and lubed it with Fader Lube, but is didn't have any affect on it. It's not like the normal crackling you hear with a dirty pot.

How about a picture of the pot, and a value for the pot? I've got about 300 or so pots, most of them on/off volume types, with and without taps, so I may be able to provide you with a pot you can swap the resistive element out of - most of the time it's just a few tabs to bend and then swap the wiring over. Any markings beyond the Zenith 63- part number would be helpful too - I'm most interested in the manufacturer code - 137, 304, 235, etc. CTS, Stackpole and Mallory made pots for Zenith, and Clarostat did too, but mostly the smallish audio pots.


Cheers,
