I’m having trouble coming up with a replacement part necessary to bring my client’s Grundig 5399U/S back to life, so I turn to the Internet to help.
Part of the band switch assembly is a rocker arm which spans the length of the chassis and allows the radio to switch between AM and FM. This piece of the mechanical linkage was made with very poor-quality metal on the Grundig 5399 radio and the part has degraded into dozens of tiny pieces which cannot be readily reassembled. If anyone reading this has, or knows where to locate, a Grundig 5399 rocker arm or pattern to recreate one please leave a comment and I’ll be in touch.
The rocker arm from any Grundig 8000-series console chassis from the mid 1950s is also a suitable replacement, and I am interested in any 8000-series parts chassis if one of those is available as well. The part looks like this:
Leave a message if you have any leads! Thanks.
