After church I went ahead and took the case off the radio so that I could clean out the glass from the old broken tube. Also found the washers and nuts that are supposed to hold the transformer to the main assembly. These nuts had evidently come off at some point and allowed the transformer to come loose and hit up against the rectifier tube thereby shattering it. Got it secured now. Gonna do a thorough cleaning on the inside while I have everything apart. Also need to replace a toggle switch that controls "Standby/Recieve". I'll start searching for one of those next. The dial face is also bent inward and is causing the tuning for the Bandspread and Frequency to be obstructed. Still trying to figure out what I need to do about that.
That's it for tonight. I'll work on it some more this week.
