I am restoring a Zenith 6V27 radio and discovered the vibrator was removed. According to my research, an ATR 522, Mallory 246 or Radiart 5411 are direct replacements. However, I have been unable to find any of these for sale. Are there other types that would work or does it need to be a direct replacement?

You want this one? It’s an original. It worked when I took it out of the radio 17 years ago

Thanks

I have many vibrators, buffer caps, OZ4s, and even eye tubes if you cannot locate same. Denis

You may be better off building a S.S substitute over the long run, I found an Australian site with instructions on building a S.S synchronous vibrator, though you may have to look up EIA substitutes for some of the part numbers they have listed:

P.S Correction, it's a New Zealand site, it was the first time I looked at it in six months.

I built my own SS vibrator using a very similar circuit for my 6v27. Seems to work well with no transformer heating.

Oh dear! They will not be pleased. That's a "New Zealand" publication, they're a bit East of us across a little ditch called the "Tasman Sea".
