Well, This rock solid ... for 30+ years now., preamp failed me. It took a steady diet of 160 vac from a faulty power feed to damage her.
With my new found schematic... I pulled her a part. Transformer V's were good to the U205 V.regulator. Otherside... zip. I also see one 10 ohm resistor that got hot as well. Found a new Raytheon regulater on line.. amazing. I will update after I get her back up.
Built very well... made to repair... plug in sockets for IC's and all. Fine piece well worth repair.
