I'm working on an Admiral 4206-C6 radio/phono and I'm having trouble finding any info on the unit. Can anyone tell me a good source for information on this model? Please let me know if anyone has experience with this particular phono chassis .
Thanks

Terry D

Are you sure it's not a 4206-C6? https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/admiral_4206_c64206c.html

Hello everyone again.
Well i am getting familiar with the workings and mechanisms of the turntable and the record changer, but i have a way to go yet. I have the radio working good now and when i inject a low 400 Hz signal into the phono input jack on the the radio i hear it loud in the speaker. Today i'll reinstall the cartridge and test it somehow. I think if i touch the needle holder i should get a sound in the speaker ? Can anyone tell me of a way to test the cartridge ? I need a needle for the cartridge. The cartridge is marked " Webster Electric Racine ". It looks like the needle would be one of those old nial needles. You know the steel ones maybe?
I have posted pics of the cartridge and hopefully one of you guys will recognize it.
can anyone tell me where to find a manual or something for this phonograph? This is my first attempt to repair a phonograph, so all the advice and tips are welcome.
Thanks
Terry D

Chances are 99.9% that cartridge is dead. With the phono plugged in first make sure your amp is working by touching the cartridge leads and getting hum. Then connect the cartridge, and since you are missing a needle...gently probe with something that will go into the spot where the needle goes and see if you get a good thump or whatever (not hum). No sound means it's dead. No one now rebuilds these cartridges. You may get by with a P-51 cartridge https://www.thevoiceofmusic.com/catalog ... erBase=P51 if your tracking weight is less than 9g and you can make it fit.

Thanks for the reply Tbirdkid.
I am pretty sure the tracking weight is more than 9g,, it's a heavy tone arm.
i'll do the test as you said looking for a hum on the wire connections and a thump from the a makeshift needle. Am i correct in assuming that the original needle was a steel rod with a point ?
