Hi All,
I've recently been dealing with my Splitdorf Abbey radio (actually listed as T.A.Edison Radio) and I had no luck with the bleeder resistor. The radio si a very classic 26-26-26-27-26-71 + 80 TRF, just loe Atwater kent 40 or Bremer Tully 6.40
The resisting device is divided into 5 sections and all of them are shot - no readings at all all over the resistor.
The scheme - you can look at it on Nostalgiaair - shows five nice divisions a-b-c-d-e, but NO values.
Have you got a rough idea of the resistance values I am supposed to drop in?
Please let me know...5 on 5 is a nice BAD score.

Thank you,

I realize this thread is from 2010, but I stumbled onto a drawing with the values listed and if it is too late to help Luca maybe it will help someone else.

Starting at the top:
A: 2500
B: 5400
C: 4500
D: 150
E: 650
