The capacitor has 2 capacitors, 2x2uF + o.1uF The 2 x2 uf in series makes the ringer get 1 uf, and the anti-sidetone needs them shunted to 4 uF. The 01. is for the pulse contacts filtering. If the work, do not change from the original.

Quote from: FABphones on October 13, 2022, 05:34:57 AM...Have you tried marking the inside of the phone shell......A piece of Scotch tape might do it, or a thin layer of Plasticine rubbed on, or dampen the shell with a fine mist and sift a small amount of flour over the area (just ideas).

Quote from: HarrySmith on October 13, 2022, 03:21:06 PMOK. Understood. I had a dial do that to me also. I put all the parts I could find in a baggie & sent it to Steve, 2 days later I got back a working dial. He even replaced the springs I did not find.
