PostSubject: a follow up to a zenith i.d. thread.   Wed Oct 13, 2010 3:51 am

just before the board issue, i posted asking for the help in i.d.'ing a zenith receiver that was listed on a local sale for 100 o.b.o.

one post identified it as a 8-s-154. a following post identified it as a 6-s-164.

well, i finally got in touch with the seller, determined it to be in fact a 6-s-164, and agreed to 75 for the set.

apparently, this set has been converted to a.c. and it appears that it may have been done somewhere around 1950 based on pencil markings on the chassis.

will post more before pics when i finally get it. am looking forward to working on this receiver.

any thoughts on this set as it will be my first zenith?

Model would be 6-B-164. See how the conversion was done, and if it works well, keep it as it is. If you change it to a 8 tube chassis yo will need the correct speaker and also an escutcheon.
