So the gongs will have to be placed closer together by loosening the screws and turning them.Can you detect any movement at all of the clapper, even if it is not striking the gongs?
QuoteThe only issue remaining, which is purely cosmetic at this point, is the handset cord. In my pictures above, the yellow and black cords connect to the receiver end of the handset, however on the new cord I received, only the green and red wires (the red having two spades) appear long enough to reach the receiver end. The wires on the other end appear too short to reach the terminals in the body of the phone.
Quote from: TelePlay on August 06, 2022, 12:30:26 PMIt's not really cosmetic because it is inside the handset and housing. If a conductor is too short, the spade lug can be cut off, a longer piece of similar wire soldered to the cut end and a new spade lug placed on the other end. Put a piece of appropriately sized shrink wrap over the soldered joint and it will be good as new, but now longer. It may not be technically correct for the phone but it can't be seen and it should work just fine.As for the 2 spade lugs on the red wire, I would think one connects in the transmitter cup and the other in the receiver cup. In WE handset cords, a white lead from the receiver and a red lead from the transmitter cups connect to the same terminal on the WE network. In this case with a 3 conductor handset cord, the red wire would be the "one" conductor going to that network terminal instead of "two" conductors (red and white) connecting the one side of the receiver and one side of the the transmitter to that terminal. I've seen 3 conductor handset cords with one receiver lead tied in the transmitter cut to one transmitter lead. So, it should work be others here more familiar with AE and WE handset setups can correct me if I got this wrong.
