philco: More Documentation Philco 42 pt 7
Robert Stetz

I am looking for more information on the Philco 42-PT-7.  I have a copy of the schematics but was hoping to find a Sams with the parts list or the original documents from the manufacturer. I found an all original radio that needs lots of work.

Larry Anderson

I have the 1942 Philco yearbook. It shows a model 42-PT-87/88. It's a 5 tube portable 117Z6G,1H5G, 1N5G,1A7G & 3Q5G. It has a parts list. Could this be your set? Larry

Dismiss my first post. I found the 42-PT-7. I am uploading for a new model and also will upload the parts list and schematic and Alignment. Larry

Robert Stetz

Thanks Larry  


Any additional info I can get will be helpful.  


There is a site that claims they have the original Manufacturer repair info and spare parts list.

I will see what shows up from the members and if  necessary I will purchase the info and post it for the members..

Thanks Again
