Dear Members. I am seeking old, Parts catalogues, (preferably in electronic form), in an effort to pass on, (not sell), my collection of "New Old Stock parts".

As a consequence having moved house seven times over the years, I seem to have lost or misplaced much of my old catalogues. I would like to be able to identify items from their part number, and be able to know, from what they are.

I need Parts catalogues for

Radar. Radar T.V. Replacements Pty Ltd Nth Coburg Vic E 2891

Anodeon. Radio Corporation Pty Ltd.

Telecomponents Replacement Parts. Telecomponents Pty Ltd Brookvale, NSW

Radio Parts Group. Mid 1970's

Kingsley Radio Pty Ltd. 380 St Kilda Rd Melbourne Parts Division 225 Trafalgar St

Petersham Sydney N.S.W.


A sample of my frustration is,

1. A new coil marked Telecomponents 6150. I can see that it is either a pass, or a trap. What is it from? It is new. It is unused.

Another coil, marked 41542, it looks to me to be a Sine Wave Coil, from a, AWA? STC? Precedent?

A Rola Transformer, TV201. Looks like a Audio output transformer, but the lead colours do not match. It is too small to be a vertical output transformer.

Please help me, and others.

Old parts catalogues are probably the hardest old service documentation to find these days. The only ones that I've come across are the Rola, Telecomponents and Radio Parts catalogues.

The Telecomponents listing was reprinted at the front of the 1967 JR B&W TV service manual and a cut down version of the Rola list appeared in the 1971 edition. You should have those two lists already, if not, let me know and I'll post them here.

Looking at the lists, the Telecomponents 6150 is a 37.5 MHz adjacent channel sound trap (universal type).
The coil marked 41452 fits the AWA / MSP parts numbering system but I've never seen a part number to application list so it will be hard to find the application. I went through the AWA manuals and 41452 is close to the parts issued in 1961 but it was not a sine wave coil used on AWA sets as far as I can see. It may be a MSP part number for use in other brands of TV's.
The Rola TV201 is a 1:4 ratio blocking oscillator transformer for universal replacement purposes. It would fit several different TV's.

Hi TV Collector,

I am restoring a valve guitar practice amplifier early 60's or so I think.

It came to me with a toasted power transformer (I suspect the 12AX7 that it arrived with in the power socket didn't help but I'll know more as I pull it down.).

The transformer is a Telecomponents 3294 (I think - maybe 3284 the tranny has got very hot at one point and this has affected the printing).

Would you have any details re this transformer amongst your material.

Also a more general call, would anyone have one for sale.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

I had a look but the documentation I have only covers TV specific parts so it doesn't list the 3294 or 3284 transformer part numbers.

Power transformers are not that critical so you should be able to estimate the voltage and current requirements from the amplifier design. What type of of output valves does the amp use? That is the main factor that will determine the transformer ratings.
