Delco model 987088 Chevy tubed radio (1955 vintage)

Fri Feb 12 14:03:58 EST 1999

I was wondering if perhaps anyone here is familiar with a Delco model 987088
Chevy tubed radio (1955 vintage). I recapped all the caps and now the thing
is dead when I bench test it ( hook up Plus /Minus and ground light to
chassis to turn on).  I am looking for a schematic as well as advice as to
whether I have messed up by replacing all caps with orange drop capacitors
(I am nervous that maybe I should have used caps such as electrolytic).  The
unit has (2) 12BA6, OZ4, 12BE6, Vibrator, 12V6GT, 12AV6 tubes.  I also
checked voltage on the unit and don't seem to have any voltages over 1v.
Does anyone know where I can get a schematic or have any advice for me
regarding this unit?  I am very unfamiliar with this unit as well as car
radios in general so any advise would be much appreciated.
