Tom, here are the pics of that Sparton. It's rough, but it's not beyond repair.

It's a nice set I really did/Do enjoy it, it's just time I pass it along, I watched it a good amount when it was working right . Early this past afternoon me and Dwight made a deal for it and I'm getting a good working late 60's color set in trade that I think I'll be happy with Although I will admit I'm a little sad to see the coaxial go but I'm sure I'll run across another one someday, I really do like the standard non remote non power tuning coaxials better.

That may have been the LAST interesting set I got from the local curb action, probably in 2003. Lucky I had the remote still around from many years ago...but that original 21ESP4 was totally finished. With the rebuilt NOS, it looks "Black Daylight" again.
I just wonder how it sounds ...

While I'm thinking about it, a few things I could sure use if anyone has them!

1. A screen mask for a 3" Pilot

2. A CTC-58 chassis, with or without modules.

3. A Zenith Jetliner for parts. My set works great, but the tuner is absolutely toast.

4. Chassis for an RCA 730TV2. Because I'm beyond frustrated with mine.

5. Big boxes of unsorted dirty used tubes that they'd like to sell cheap. Jumbled bags and boxes of resistors and mish mosh parts are also of interest. Having been a parts guy for 28 years, I actually really enjoy sorting through, organizing, and using them.

6. A good working TV Analyst with probes.

Tim,
I can help you out with a pretty good working B&K Analyst, has a slide or two, and at least the RF Connecting cable and Instruction Manual. The other cables are basically patch cables with banana plugs and or alligator clip leads, I think I have a couple extra of those. I have successfully used this B&K to substitute Vertical and horizontal osc. signals, and horiz. plate drive and color bars and convergence test pattern, etc.
I may have some modules for a CTC-58, but I need to know the module numbers...it's been too many years and I don't remember them all now! I'm not sure but I don't think I have any service info. for a CTC-58, that would tell me which modules.

I don't need the modules themselves, it's the chassis I need. Trying to take a lazy end run around an issue that I've never seen . Of course I won't find one and I'll have to fix it and do it the right way, but it never hurts to give it a shot

Still gotta get my new-to-me van registered so I can drive it out there. That means I'm going to have to brave that seemingly infinitely long line at the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.

But now that I'm no longer limited to 'sports car' sized cargo space, I'll have plenty of room for the 1954 Emerson Color set that's going on display in the Museum. And I heard a rumor that I just might be bringing out a TT-5 for the auction.

One thing that there's never enough of at the convention is dollies, so this year I built me a big honkin carpeted one out of 2x4s. Sucker must weigh 40 lb
