 I just stripped out a basket case VK II transmitter for rebuilding.
 Most of the transformer leads are brittle and even carefully removing them thru the chassis hole, I can feel the rubber inner jacket breaking up.
 I would expect to replace the wires near as I can get to the windings. 
 The plate transformer will need good HT wire.
I have quite a bit of different sizes of silver teflon.
for most of the windings but not quite sure what to do about the HT wires.

 This is a project transmitter, not a restoration.

  Suggestons? Sources of suitable wire in an affordable put up. I have other large transformers with the same problem as well.
