Check with Henry at the "Virginia City Radio Museum " up in Virginia City, 
Nevada.  He does VERY good restorations on radios.  He did my S-38B that I 
had as a kid and it runs great.

He has a site on the web by that name also, but I do not have it handy.

One FINE Museum on old radios back to 1914!!!
