Hello All,

Received this today and the chrome on dash unit cleaned up much better than expected---just beautiful !

Much more to come, so stay tuned !

How many of these do you have now? Looking forward to seeing photos of this one.

Hey Colin---This will be the 2nd '59-'60 Sportable portable unit, but the 1st dash unit of any type---had never even seen one in person before this and this complete outfit is in outstanding condition for its age ! Never thought my max. bid (approx. one weeks pay) would win when I impulsively placed it out of "excitement"...

And the only 59-60 Pontiac dash unit I'd ever seen previously was pic of was Meade's very rough & rusty unit. Another Delco service guy I know who was in business for many years starting in the 1960's said he's never even saw a picture of this one (except in service manual, I'd imagine)... Seems to be the "rarest" of the "auto-portable" Delco sets---so was even more amazed when another showed up on Ebay almost immediately after I got this one, but doesn't appear to be in as good of condition...

Would very much like to hear from anyone who has one even if still in the car !

Below is one of the Ebay pics (looks much better after cleaning)---more to come as time allows...

Just couldn't wait to post !

Before disassembling, wanted to see if this outfit would work at all with original electrolytics, so made necessary connections, inserted portable unit into dock, and turned on---very loud "chirpy motor-boating" at first. Re-seated portable onto connector and tried again---WOW ! Worked excellent all across band with that great Delco sound using only a couple feet of test-leads on antenna cable end---only issues are a slightly "scratchy" volume control and dial tracking being off around 20 kHz. Even dial-light and push-buttons fine... That old "excited as a kid with new toy" feeling ! Performance and sound seem better than the newer Cadillac Wonderbar set I completed awhile back...

The battery tubes in portable appear clean with only a couple small spots of dried residue inside. Looking through to contacts, they appear good but have a "shiny" appearance as if wet---so won't install batteries until they're inspected closely once disassembled. There is dried leakage residue at end cap which fortunately spared its contacts, but did stain aluminum somewhat both inside and out---the external is very slight and am hoping that wax will take care of it...

The dash unit is in remarkably good shape for age, but the chassis does show it was in car awhile with some dirt/dust inside and on wiring... Have already removed knobs and detail cleaned them as well as the escutcheon (externally as the inside appears fine)---the chrome is just excellent with only a few tiny "pits" and very light scratches from use when viewed under lighted magnifier... The knobs have that "silky" new chrome feel to them...

To be continued !

John

Completed the portable unit this weekend !

The "corner" of the slide-in plastic antenna cover was cracked almost halfway across, so taped together securely with Scotch blue painters tape and very carefully applied a small bead of Loctite Go-2 Gel adhesive all across and placed with corner down into groove cut out of foam rubber pad to cure.

The left end cap which had discolored area from battery leakage responded well to vigorous rubbing with Mother's carnauba wax using a Q-tip---had to go over & over it using as much "pressure" as possible, but it turned out well with just a trace of the stain remaining.

The thin phenolic plate used to retain battery contact pair on inside of left cap was broken and loose section had simply been tacked in place with silicon rubber RTV causing contacts to be loose. Cleaned the plate and contact mounting surface thoroughly with detergent and Isopropyl alcohol to remove residue and then glued securely into proper position using Super-glue gel.

After disassembly, found that someone had already been inside and sloppily replaced (damaged PCB pads) all the electrolytics except for the most problematic audio coupling cap---so replaced it as well as the others. Turned out the "wet look" on internal battery contact supports was simply shiny flux---they had added more solder to springs including "globs" at ends, so carefully removed the excess with solder-wick, cleaned thoroughly with Isopropyl alcohol to get rid of flux residue, and polished with "brass toothbrush".

Detail cleaned the "cosmetics" using extra care and only water-dampened then dry soft cotton rags on the face-plate to avoid scratching finish and damaging vinyl. Used Novus-2 on both sides of tuning knob to remove minor scuffing. The chassis had several areas with leakage residue at left end, so carefully scraped with fingernails and cleaned using Windex and Q-tips. Only "major" cosmetic flaw with this set is the "missing" dark gray finish around several holes at top of speaker grille---need to see if there is a matching color Sharpie !

This portable unit is evidently an earlier version as it uses the substantial dial pointer assembly with set-screw (instead of "press-on" like other "late" Sportable), has felt "bumper" at back of positive battery contact support instead of cardboard, and the aluminum extrusion for cabinet is thicker/heavier...

Electrically, took many hours to find the "touchy" intermittent on PCB. Even though I've had these have bad internal IFT caps, they usually would oscillate or show some type of activity during tuning where this set was completely dead (except for very slight audio hiss) once signal lost. You could barely touch PCB in certain areas and it would come & go using batteries---in dash unit, simply turning power on & off would restore operation for long periods of time until unit "tapped". Out of curiousity, did bridge all IFT's one at a time with good cap with no effect. Finally found the most "sensitive" area of PCB near the 1st IF transistor and was able to get signal to come & go by very gently pressing down near the part---now could measure and compare transistor voltages ! All voltages of the 1st IF transistor would shift where the 2nd was stable. Removed power and checked continuity on all PCB traces while pressing and all were fine ! Since I was now gently pressing and not "tapping", decided to rule out possibility of "tin whiskers". Then measured resistance to ground at all transistor pins and noticed that it would shift upward when pressed. Desoldered two of the transistor leads and isolated them from pads and resistance now steady at all three ! Hmmm... Noticed that the emitter lead was very short through PCB, so gently pulled it through with small needle-nose pliers. Resoldered and now the resistance measurements were steady regardless of board flexing ! Applied power and radio now worked fine during "tap & flex" exercise---thank goodness ! Very grateful that there were no component failures ! Performance on par with other "normal" '59 Delco auto-portable sets in collection receiving stations well all across band---IFT's pretty much on as they were, but performance did benefit from very slight "tweaking". The ANT trimmer was almost all the way out and needed to be for proper operation. Just for "fun", plugged in one of the '59 Olds RF booster modules and was surprised how much better it worked with this set---didn't "de-tune" as it does on the Olds units, and performance improvement much better (another "hmmmm..."). Have been listening to my favorite low-power DX oldies station for a couple hours or so on battery power and it's working great ! Haven't tried it, though, with dash unit since repairs---but did clean the male edge connector in "dock" using Q-tips with alcohol and it was very dirty !

Project pics below in two "installments". The last pic show both Sportables in collection---pretty neat to have both an "early" and "late" model to be able to compare their differences... As mentioned in other Sportable thread, Delco had actually "written in" the 1960 part number on S/N label though radio came in a '59 Catalina...

Now on to the dash unit "internals" !

Thanks much, Colin !

Still trying to come up with an idea of some type of framework to display the entire outfit---think the dashboard idea is too "off the wall" and would be difficult/expensive to accomplish...

Hello All,

Both portable & dash unit now complete and am beginning to put together the display “pedestal”. Dash project details follow…

Replaced the one, smaller dual-electrolytic with individual parts. I’ve not yet seen one of the large aluminum caps fail in a car radio and it appears to work fine, so left it alone for now.

The inside of unit was dirty & dusty from use in car years ago, so after disassembly, carefully cleaned surfaces with water dampened then dry Q-tips and cotton rag pieces. Very carefully cleaned oily/dirty wiring with Q-tips and 91% Isopropyl alcohol. Gently used dry toothbrush and vacuum cleaner on PCB bottom where Q-tips wouldn’t reach. Carefully blew out remaining dust/debris with compressed air. Very gently dusted off the tuning needle back-plate using only a very soft, dry cotton rag piece as not to damage the painted Sportable “script”. The tuning dial window on escutcheon did have some fine scratches, so went over it several times with Novus-2 polish using a clean, dry soft toothbrush to remove residue from edges and corners.

The tuning mechanism had been sloppily/heavily greased at some point in time and took a lot of cleaning with Q-tips, cotton rag pieces and Isopropyl alcohol to remove the oily mess (some of which had hardened). The grease had gotten into the tuning clutch and even though radio tuned fairly well, it did occasionally slip. So removed clutch and cleaned it and its bell thoroughly with acetone and Q-tips, then adjusted according to Delco service manual. The treadle pivot screw point was dirty, so cleaned it also and applied a tiny amount of Valvoline high-performance wheel bearing grease. The anti-backlash gears were not properly tensioned, so adjusted according to manual by rotating “free” gear until ends of spring were ¼” apart. Also properly adjusted the rear shaft bearing plate for proper mesh of worm & anti-backlash gears. Tuning now much easier, smoother, and precise with perfect push-button action.

The original dial lamp socket center contact must have broken off at some point as someone had simply made a tiny loop at end of wire and soldered. Also, the cloth outer insulation had worn away where wire exited socket from the radio probably laying upside-down in storage, so stripped it back to good area, found a good contact in a junk socket for replacement, and repaired. To prevent the cloth from unraveling again, applied a tiny bead of Superglue gel around stripped edge which soaked in and bonded the threads. An incorrect, dimmer bulb had been installed, so replaced with the proper #1891 which is much brighter and dial illumination much better now.

The “pedestal” project is now underway with the cut-off wire spool being the main component. Carefully positioned and marked height & angle where the portable “dock” was horizontal and there was enough room beneath chassis to set “un-docked” radio for display, then used cardboard to set angle on cut-off saw at work. Tried it with radio and fortunately it turned out just right. Just need to make a support plate to fit on top with lip at back so radio won’t slide off---will post again when this is complete…

Just took the last couple of these pics tonight when testing the outfit for the first time since reassembly and all works great ! The tuning mechanism is MUCH better after cleaning & proper servicing and was well worth the effort…

Hope you enjoy the pics of this very scarce and unique car radio outfit… As always, appreciate all comments and others' experiences…

Note that the pictures are in two posts since there are more than 10 total…

John

Hey Joe---good to hear from you !

Nothing really special---just need to cut an aluminum plate and make support "shelf" for top of pedestal. Plan to simply display it "bare" so that the entire unique set can be examined...

Discovered that this radio should be used with a 3 to 4 ohm speaker instead of 10---grateful that I have a couple good older 6 X 9 Delco units given to me last fall by that friend in WI... Would sure be neat to find a '59 Bonneville rear seat speaker grille to mount it, but that probably won't happen !

Hello All,

Completed the pedestal today---wasn't as involved as expected and turned out very well.

Made a paper template earlier this week to locate necessary clearance areas.

Found a scrap piece of aluminum plate at work yesterday and used the hydraulic punch after hours for the large hole (dock bracket mount clearance) before shearing to size. Filed/sanded edges & corners smooth. Because of the angled cut of wire spool used for base, was pretty tedious getting proper positioning on elliptical end. Used a level on edge of plate and marked edges of clearance cut-out on plastic while holding a ruler against side of plate and spool to maintain proper position---had to do this many times to get it right, then held firmly in position to flip over and mark underside of plate so that retaining screw locations could be determined. Drilled & countersunk two holes toward lower end of "ellipse" after measurements made, then installed stainless-steel flat-head 4-40 screws and aluminum standoffs to keep panel on the "pedestal". Was originally going to glue together, but it was so difficult to maintain proper position to keep panel level side-to-side that I simply decided to just adjust with radio mounted and rotate as needed using the level on edge of chassis top. Had a scrap piece of thin, black anti-slip material which seemed to work great during "trial mount" without adhesive, so cut to fit and glued onto support plate. Was also planning to add a back stop to plate for rear of radio chassis, but the anti-slip material seems to "grip" very well and radio is very secure without it---even when using push-buttons for tuning.

The completed pedestal works fine, thankfully, and allows the entire chassis to be neatly displayed as well as used. Once a speaker enclosure is made, plan to put together a good-looking wiring harness using Delco connectors.

Today's pics below with the first two showing close-ups of "docking" unit interior...

Wow, was that a fast response---just posted ! Thanks Colin !

Hope to find a narrow (less than 24" wide) glass-door display cabinet this spring for the only remaining spot in corner of family room. Might make it an "active" cabinet by adding an outlet internally for power supply and placing speaker cabinet on top ???

Great job once again John.

You should make a little plaque indicating year, model number etc. you could mount it to the pedestal. :)
