Would you be a member of a Boatanchor's group or Hammarlund group where you
could post a want for me?  I have started restoration on a HQ-170 and have
discovered that the main shaft of a tuning capacitor is bent.  I am afraid
that it will break if I attempt to straighten it, it is a special gear
reducing shaft, and think it best to just try and find a replacement.


Value of the capacitor is unknown and not specified in the parts list or on
the schematic, but in looking at the plates, it appears to be a low value
cap.  Here is how Hammarlund describes the part in the parts list.


C30  Variable Cap, Vernier Tuning   K42040-2


Could you help with any of your multitude of groups?
