    Thanks Mike - that's also a Plan I'd considered - I rewind small motors 
for the vintage and show car trade, so I've got all the Stuff here to do 
that easily...  also Gary Brown gave me a nice quote on a refurb for it, 
so there's that.

  Right now my Lofty Goal is to get on 80M AM fone ASAP - so I've got the 
Valiant on the bench trying to find why it's so unstable - I replaced a 
lot of the RF power section caps and I s'pec one of 'ems gone AWOL  - I'll 
know more in a couple of hours...

   Thanks also to all who have written so far - it'd be much more difficult 
without the Help!
