Internal views of a Henry 1KD-5

This unit looks like it served a good hard life.  Many part changes and some mods.  Every licensed ham operator has the privilege and joy of repair, modifications and operations of their gear.  It is a great hobby.  

I did not apply power.  I feel this unit needs a complete disassembly, compared to factory diagrams, de-modified and restored before any juice (EMF) is to be applied.  Therefore I have no idea how the output tube would perform.
