Hi, Does anyone own a Taylor 45A valve tester in full working condition. If so, could you please open it up and take a good quality colour photo of the components on the paxoline panel. I am trying to repair one and many of the components have been changed to wrong values. I also need the values of the 4 wire wound resistors on the left if you could measure them and mark them on the photo it would be appreciated. kindest regards Pete M

Radiomuseum have a picture of the PCB, can’t read all the values but many can be read.

@nuvistor Thankyou,

I have already found these pages, but none of them help in this case. as you say the values are difficult to read. the manual I have shows values of resistors but does not show there position on the paxolin board.

and the wiring is horrendous to try and follow. the ones that are readable does not comply with the list of resistors shown on the manual. there must be a working unit out there somewhere, that I will have something to compare it with. one of the resistors on the picture shown looks like it has 4 wires attached to it. this could be possible as the ends were solderable kindest regards Pete m
