Well that was interesting, to say the least. Thanks everyone, again.

My handset is an F1W. I'm not sure if it was original to this phone. The cord definitely looks like it was thrown in later.
And, to support AGB's comment, there IS resistance in the red line. I noticed that when I was repairing the wiring.
And I'm measuring 46mv across the receiver terminals.

This topic is now dangling in space without context !

Why split it off from its beginning ?

The 129F condenser was identified in Reply #1 by Jack Ryan (http://www.classicrotaryphones.com/forum/index.php?topic=18564.0)

The author of the 3rd reply requested the discussion split off from the original top long ago and actually occurred in what was Reply #2, now the first post of this topic. The first post of this topic included the quote which is the complete part identification request of the first post of the other, above linked topic.

A 3rd topic, a second split off, was of the last few replies that started a discussion of why there is a loud click in the handset when depressing the hook switch plungers. That is now in the Troubleshooting board.

A lot more discipline by members sticking to the original question or problem posted with a brand new topic  (keeping on topic with short, concise replies to get a fix in a page or two at most) and then by creating another new topic for tangent and off topic discussions would help prevent this massive after the fact clean up. Yes, it's a wide grey line of when a topic veers off into a substantial new discussion. Maybe shorter, to the point replies instead of lengthy deep technical explanation that bore most members to the point of walking away from the forum would have allowed all of the points in the multiple pages of the first topic, now 3 topics, to remain as one topic, short and easy to read, to follow along.


You know, in simple terms, to get the guys back from the moon, NASA's engineers who spent many hours evaluating every aspect of the equipment available ended up giving one simple radio instruction of "press the button at exactly . . ." as the solution. That worked and was all the guys in the Apollo 13 capsule needed to solve their immediate problem (okay, maybe a bit more commands but those were for subsequent questions of yet unknown problems - new topics).
