Here's a link to a simple CRT tester I posted on another site (that's currently undergoing a rebuild...)

24-inch CRTs are much less common than 21-inch ones from that era, but not impossible to find if you do need to replace it. It will be worth finding or borrowing a good CRT tester to check it before worrying that it is bad. Good luck and welcome to the crazy, fun world of early TV collecting and restoration.

I figured that. I hope my tube is good, and I am really in need of a proper CRT tester! It would just be nice to have, since i'm going to be working on more sets in the future and want to know if the tube is good before I put any work into them.

Wow, thanks for the link! Seems pretty simple. I may try this if I have time, but eventually I want to get a proper CRT tester.

If that chassis is really cadmium plated (not zinc) you need to be very careful. Watch out for dust and be meticulous about hand washing. It's worse than lead, a slow poison that does particularly nasty things. Been banned for many years here, prob same in the States.
