Sams photofact set 479 folder 7 date 3-60 features the General Electric models C450A, C450B, C451A, C451B, C452A, C452B, T140A and T141A as the same schematic. T140A and T141A without clock. Beitmans Volume 20, 1960, page 44 features General Electric models T140A and T141A as the same schematic. Since the General Electric Service Manual lists all 4 models using the same schematic but having just different cabinet colors, then all these models can use these reference documents for the schematics and alignment data.
