I have recently required a MB60 electrolitic capacitors dated 1957, my note is my model is different in as much as the standard data sheet shows the valve layout V5  is located halfway up the chassis next to L9 my version is in fact fitted at the bottom next to V4, is this a known variation or is the data sheet only correct for one variation of this model.

Hello Mark,

Yes Trader sheet 1403 indicates V5 next to L9, but in the Bush service manual it shows V5 next to V4.

Yours is an early version, mine is the later version. Differences in the circuit are noted under 'Modifications' in the Trader Sheet.


Regards .... Howard
