Quote from: RDPipes on August 03, 2022, 06:20:32 AM...if I remember correctly the phone wouldn't ring with the tube hooked up so instead of just taking it out ofthe circuit I removed it entirely, Duh! Dave (Poplar) showed me a thread talking about wiring these the correctway to work on the modern line and I owe him thanks for that too.

After figuring out how to wire it correctly, works/rings fine with its C3A 2-wire ringer. These INTACT early 500s are pretty rare, as Ma Bell would convert them to the later version.Mike
