Burn in reveled an intermittent power switch made from "Unobtainium".

Switched cleaned and the the intermittent solder lug cemented in place.  This repair failed and the switch section replaced with a lucky Hamfest find.

Cleaned up.

The new multi-section caps arrived.  Gone are the discrete capacitors.

The Power Switch.

The original power switch is/was intermittent.  I am looking for a new old stock replacement and will contact Mark Oppat (King of Kontrols). I hope he has a new one.  He has helped me out on several occasions.   If not this newer looking hamfest find may help.

Hamfest find. This switch looks considerably cleaner.

Hamfest switch on 500k tapped Delco Radio pot.

 

The Hamfest switch is very stable when measured with an ohm meter. I have confidence it should work.  A NOS switch is not available.
