I think I have info on that here but do consider that the Aerial & Oscillator coils & the Gang were a matched set. So it might be an idea to rat a set out of an abandoned chassis.

Hi Bowler, have you read my article on building a Little General?
If not its in the Special Projects section.
Scroll back to around January 2017 and find "Fred Levers Little General for 2017".
In this I scratch build a set and use coils from various sources.
I go into what the coils have to do fairly deeply.
As Marcc says finding an old superhet chassis with a set would be the way to go.
That way you get coils that once worked so unless they have a fault will work again.

Good to see someone wanting to build something, its the only way to learn.
Cheers, Fred.

Link added to Post 4.

It makes me want to do this over Easter - I wish I had the time. Always wanted a complete Little General.

A valve a day keeps the transistor away...

My point well taken, is that I have a 649MA under the bench minus an IF coil and the transformers. All of that coil set & IF is compatible. Not sure of what the IF got scarpered for?
