Having trouble finding the correct schematic for a Pacific Radio model 60 (according to the label on the rear of the chassis). The tube numbers are ink stamped on the chassis. According to the markings the tubes are 6C5, 6J7, 6K7, 6F6, 5Z4 and one socket which has a 75 tube isn't marked that I can see. When I searched the database at Grille Cloth Headquarters it returned a Pacific model 60 with tubes 6C5, 6L7, 6K7, 6Q7, 6F6 and 5Z4. That's clearly not the schematic in Riders for the model 60. GCH lists Aetna, Knight and Manchester as associated with Pacific Radio but I found nothing in Riders under those names. Any help or input is appreciated, thanks.

Can we see some pictures---including a top view of the chassis.

Maybe made by Warwick.

bingo!! Warwick 604, 606, and 653---all the same chassis----and the layout matches:

604 here---dial looks right (or close)

OP's set could be a variant of this, with some octals instead of big pin

Thank you one and all. The more I study it, the more I believe I may have a variation of the Warwick 604, same or similar circuit with different tubes. I just noticed to the left of the label is printed W.M. Co. probably for Warwick Manufacturing. And the 604 on radio attic certainly looks like the same chassis and dial. Mine is lacking a tone control. I will study the schematic and chassis more tomorrow and see how they compare. Thanks again.

You have wandered into the murky world of the "LA Radios"----we're lucky we found as much as we did.

For more than you wanted to know, get Floyd Paul's books here:

Yes, the W.M. on that left hand label definitely indicates the set was made by Warwick. I never realized that Pacific didn't make all of their own sets. Apparently they also had a branch in Chicago that built sets for Allied, Walgreens, and other private brands.
