I am repairing one of these that looks to be original so I am confused about this.
It seems this radio has an original looking red wire from the mains switch which goes to the anode of the AF7. The diagram shows, as you would expect, the switch between the primary of the transformer and the neutral? Is there any reason why this wire should be correct? Thank you
Hello Peter, we are "talking" about the tube AF7 in working condition ? I have 14 tubes of this type in my private stock but no tube has a silver coat inside. But gettered tubes have a partiell silver coat inside, like a mirror surface. But these getter traces are not in pink. What manufacturer is noted of the tube? When tubes loose the vacuum, in some cases you can see inside a white coat (milky), the tube is working?

HI Translation error! I was discussing the bulb which lights the tuning scale.
I have not tested the valves yet. Still need a replacement speaker or cone for my existing speaker before I can switch on
