FS Collins 516F-2 AC Power Supply. This unit is Winged Emblem and has a
speaker installed in the cabinet. The cabinet is CCA Very Good to near
Excellent. There are a few small scuffs in the paint which is original. They
are hardly noticeable. The Power Supply has been completely rebuilt to
original specs. All capacitors have been replaced with high quality parts.
And the old cube selenium rectifier has been replaced with 1n4006 diodes.
All work was performed by R.L. Howard, a retired Collins Dealer and Service
Technician. No "bugging in" work here. All old parts were removed, the
solder joints de-soldered and the wires from the new parts were wrapped in
and soldered just like the factor did. The power supply works perfect. It
could us a new power cable. The original one is safe, but the outside of the
cable is beginning to fray. The insulation on the inter wires is fine.
Pictures are available. Price is $455 plus shipping. Thanks, Charlie Hugg,
