I acquired at a local hamfest last weekend a BEAUTIFUL heathkit IM-11 VTVM. It works well on ac and dc scales but would not calibrate on Ohms. Looking at the back I noticed discoloring around the screw that holds the C Cell battery spring so I knew what I would find when I cracked it open, and oh yes.. a melted D Cell battery.
The spring that goes around the battery is rotted to pieces. Anyone have any idea how this could be replaced or should I just solder wires to a battery and stuff it in there? I tagged a battery in with clip leads the vtvm then works.
Hope yall had a great Christmas!
73's and God bless
