Here Is my 1947 Magnavox Belvedere The radio still works great all it needs now is just a capacitor which I haven't been able to find. A 470 volt 10/30 MF to 500 volt 10/30 MF. It has two of them. My mother acquired some years back. When we moved she wanted to get rid of it, I said that I can fix it and lo and behold I was able to. I put 6L6's instead of the 6V6's and 5U4G's instead of 4Y3's and it blew the capacitor. On the back of the radio it showed on schematic it called for 6L6's and 5U4G's but it was wrong near the actual tubes sockets they showed that they were 6V6's and 4Y3's So I figured that they would work instead of each other. There are more pictures of it here. http://bobillot.tumblr.com/
