re: 800-C

The 800-C came out in Sept 1962 (1963 model year). It was available in a Standalone version as well as used in the Next to TOTL Console, the Executive Model 950 (1963) and Model 960 (1964).

The 800-C in the 1963 Executive console is outwardly identical to the standalone 800-C but has some internal changes. The NFB circuit is different due to a different output transformer. (Numbers are different and size is approx 1/8" overall. This difference was only carried out in the 1963 model. Serial Numbers 10001-19999.
It has it's own manual, but get the 30000 and up to fill out the parts list.

The 20000 to 29999 is the Standalone that came out for the 63 model year. For now, you would use the 30000 and up manual. If I find a 20001 manual I'll upload it.

The 1964 Executive uses the standalone manual 30000 and up or 30001-39999 manual.

1964 and on (30001 and up) Subsequent Standalone versions will use any of the 30001-39999, 30001-49999, or 51501 and up manuals.

The 1800 uses the 51501 manual.

The Fisher 1800 is the Last of the 800-C versions. It is a Multi voltage unit with a Bi-Colored Front Plate. It was sold by the AAFES (post/navy exchange) network to Servicemen in 1969-1971 or so. It is the rarest of the Tube 800-C variations. It will use the 51501 and up manual.
