[AMRadio] Drying out HV transformers / Chokes

Are you sure you're talking about a BC-610 modulation transformer?

I just took the back off of my HT-4B, which is similar to the BC-610, to 
take a look at the modulation transformer.

It looks like a "pick up with one hand" object to me.

It is equally difficult to start.  I purchased one at a flea market
and it took three people to get it into my motor home.  When I got
home I had to do it alone and it is still sitting just inside...about
2" to spare...the garage door.

I have designed a carrier for it that I am making out of a file
cabinet set of casters.  BUT  the shack is up stairs.  So I am
thinking it will be easier to move the shack down to the garage and
build the linear around the transformer than to try to get it
