Looking for 465B parts


donlcramer@...
 

Hello all,

My first post to this very interesting newsgroup, so I hope this message
makes it out ok.

I would like to acquire any of the following parts for a standard 465B. My
scope was rescued from the dumpster (!) and is completely refurbished save
one each from this list:

PN 131-1428-00 CONTACT,ELEC:GROUNDING CLIP Bottom board HV shield
to "can" contact.
PN 352-0263-00 HLDR,POUCH ASSY: Blue plastic piece at
the front top of the "can".
PN 378-0044-01 FILTER ELEM,AIR:2.5 X 2.5 X 0.25 Air filter element.

The plastic pouch holder piece is the most important to me. Anyone out
there parting out a 465B, perhaps with an otherwise unuseable can?

Next question has to do with a different animal altogether, a Tek TAS 465.
I will probably regret combining these two instruments in one email due to
the confusion over the shared numeric designator. I have acquired (another
"free to a good home") broken TAS 465 100MHz 2ch analog scope and with it
came an instruction manual (070-8523-03). This manual has very limited
service info. I would like to confirm if a separate service manual exists?
Would anyone have one to sell? I've tried the usual manual sources (except
Tek). The serial number on this scope is BR10900. I know that sounds odd,
but that's what is on the label. Would anyone also know what "BR"
signifies in the serial number? Perhaps it wasn't made in Beaverton....

Thank you.

Don

Hi Don,

The Service Manual for the TAS465 is part number 070-8524-01. I have a copy
of one in my workshop (not for sale).

The only problem being is that I live in Sydney, Australia.

Best Regards,

Andrew Campbell

Hi, Don,

The grounding spring you need was used in about 30 different models
of Tek scopes, so if you find a complete junker anywhere, you may
also find the part.

The pouch lip can be a problem. Tek did sell those as separate parts
and you had to stake it to the case keeping the blobs on the inside
tight enough that it didn't interfere with sliding the case on and
off. The you MIGHT be able to reuse one, but it'll be touchy.
Again, no matter whether you're talking 465, 434, 475, etc., they
were all the same part.

Air filters: don't buy Tek and don't go out of your way to find the
filter material. Head down to your local Dollar General, Dollar
Mart, Everything-Under-A-Dollar or whatever the name of the store is
that undersells Wallyworld and buy the GENERIC Scotchbrite-like
scrubbing pads and cut them to fit. Get the non-green ones if you
can, for they tend to be even less abrasive than the green ones (and
the generic green ones don't hold a candle to the real Scotchbrite
for agressiveness). If you're in a really dusty environment, give
the filter material a quick, light shot of Pam (the spray oil for
kitchen use, generic is fine, of course) and wash and respray the
filter monthly.

The TAS465 I believe was one of Tek's big mistakes (Telequipment was
another) and were import items not of actual Tek manufacture. Stan
Griffiths can tell you all kinds of stuff about those.
