RM503 - The story continues.



Thanks for the advice regarding caps. I have checked them, and they
appear to be operational.

I spent some more time working on the PSU last night. Finally, I lifted
the 3kv rectifier (5642) and the supplies came up beautifully!

Further investigation revealed 6k ohm of leakage between the 190V (pin
9,8) and the 6v (CRT heater pin 6,7) windings of the primary transformer

I have cleaned the area with ethyl alcohol, in case the leakage was caused
by surface oils, but it is still there.

The way I see it, I have a couple of possible solutions;

1) Obtain a replacement transformer. (Tec part # 120-203) - this
component is probably made from unobtanium.
2) Rewind the 6.3v winding on the transformer. It appears to be outside
winding on the device, so it should not be that hard.
3) Install a separate 6.3v transformer to supply the CRT heater voltage.

Can anybody provide any extra information on the rewinding options? I
*really* dont want to install a separate transformer if I can help it.

Alternately, does anybody on the list have a transformer that they would
be willing to part with, or could name a supplier that would be able to
supply one (for less than the cost of my mortgage!)
