Lyric Mohawk Grandfather Clock Radio

Alright, so I finally suckered into buying this Grandfather Clock Radio. The clock movement seems to turn freely, but I can't set the time. It's filthy anyways and could use a good cleaning. Almost all of the tubes tested good, just with the rect. testing poorly.
Does anyone know what brand of tubes Mohawk used? There's a plethora of brands in this one though I'm just assuming RCA since that seems to be the standard for the time.
Also, can anyone point me to any similar knobs? I've found a few pics on the internet of originals as mine are not original.

Overall this radio looks like a very straightforward restoration, though I can't tend to it fully until I finish some other projects first.

Finally pulled the chassis out of the cabinet. Interestingly enough, the chassis slides in and out of the cabinet on slanted wooden rails. This revealed a cramped and shallow underside filled with Areovox caps. While I'm not entirely sure what's original, Someone has definitely recapped this at some point.

Curiously some of the caps have a 1600v working voltage?
Also, note the big black unmarked rectangle in the upper left corner (Capacitor?)

Can anyone share any info on what's original? Schematics are also very helpful if anyone knows where I can find any.

Thanks all,
Zach

Hi Zach,
You may have a model S-6. The schematic would be in Riders Radio volume 1-21 under the the brand All American Mohawk. The tubes in your set would then be, an 80, two 24's, 47, 27, and a 35 or 51. Six tubes all together .
