I have a really nice Sparton 1268 that has the 3rd IF (which also contains the AFC adjustment coil) replaced with a universal IF. And unfortunately the replacement won't work with the AFC discriminator. So I'm hoping to find the correct one.

I believe the part number is A-14445, although the last digit might be 3, it's hard to read on the Riders scan I have. I think the 1068 and 1078 chassis used the same transformer.

I'm also interested in the power transformer for the 1268. Someone in the past replaced the transformer with two transformers, with one to power the 2.5v filaments for the 45 tubes. I'd like to get it back to stock with a single transformer if possible. The 1068/1078 used a different transformer, as I understand it.

I'd even be interested in a whole parts donor chassis if it has both of these parts on it. Or an aftermarket IF can that would be a direct substitute for the original 3rd IF and would work with the AFC circuit.

Thanks!

-Nick

Nick,
one of the largest vintage radio shows is this weekend in Kalamazoo. Sparton stuff shows up in MI more often since it was made in Jackson, MI. This would be a great show to look for that part. I can try to see if a junker chassis shows up there but I am usually super busy at my booths selling parts. www.thevee.org has info
The # of seller spaces is up from last year and a few estates of unknown stuff are coming in, so I have no idea if one of those chassis will show up. I have the 1268 model myself and its a great radio !
Gas is at historic low prices still. Come on over!
