Can someone please explain the terminology for the individual lugs on an candohm. I have a radio that has 2 sections, but do not know what to call each lug other than left, center, or right, looking at the rear of the chassis. from the back. Thanks, Carl-Louisiana

I am not aware of any terminology for the individual lugs. I think it's kind of the same thing with electrolytic can capacitors, which at least are marked with a square, triangle, or whatever.

But as for naming a lug? Don't think so. Perhaps someone with more experience might weigh in, but I've never seen them referred to as any particular lug. I HAVE seen them listed as different resistors occasionally (R1, R2, R3 ... all part of the same candohm) but even for that you still need the schematic to figure out what's what.

As Barry said, you need to go by the circuit connection.
There was no standard identification for Candohm "pin numbers".

The same Candohm could have very different usage/connections in different radios.

This page lists many Candohms used in Zenith sets:

Would you mind sharing the make and model of the radio or device using the Candohm in question ?
