Well today is the first day I have had a rest from my allergy, whatever it is, I think it's dog hair. The cleaning of this radio is taking longer than expected because of this but I was able to get back to it today. The front panel was removed and cleaned which provides more room to get at the main circuit board and clean and inspect parts. The front panel dial and assoiated peaces were cleaned and set aside. With the front panel out of the way cleaning can proceed. The VFO is going to have to be pulled so the gear train can be cleaned and re lubricated. There is a bunch of dirt and dried grease, more on that later. It looks like I'll be replacing the cathode current meter shunt. Looks like it got a little toasted. The shunt is the little component coming off Pin-2 of the tube socket there. Looks like a coil on a ceramic coil form, and you can see it got a little hot at one time.
