My cross references for Zenith 190-6 show Radiart 5435, Mallory 246, or ATR 522.

Herb Koch of Fontana, CA can rebuild your vibrator with modern Mosfet components, and may have one in stock.

I just finished restoring my Zenith 6B129. I was able to remove the "guts" and repair my 190-6V vibrator by releasing the bottom snap ring. Fortunately, the coil was not open. It took quite a bit of scraping and burnishing of the contacts but eventually I got them all to work.

Thanks everyone,

I'm sending my vibrator off to Herb Koch this morning to be re-built.

Have a Merry Christmas,

Mike
