Beautiful cosmetic condition for this rare color set. Like most of the mid 50's entry level color sets it was pretty much a box with a screen. Admiral, like other manufactures, did have several sets that model year that were fine furniture. This Admiral Patrician model, I don't believe, has ever surfaced among collectors .

Is that thing one piece, or is the table it's sitting on seperate? Just wondering.

Edit: If none have ever surfaced, I suppose you don't know...

I believe the table was separate. If you look closely you can see black objects on the bottom where the set meets the table which almost look like feet. The Patrician was the credenza version of the C322 series I believe.

Actually I'm not sure if the set was on small feet sitting on the bottom platform or is attached to the platform as one piece. All the Admiral models had a C322 # followed by additional #'s to indicate cabinet style and finish ect.

Does anyone here have a schematic for run 18 of the 29Z1 chassis? Sams only covers up through run 17.

If you do not have the factory manuals, you need Admiral service manuals S592 and S592a. They are at The ETF listed with the SAMS. All the best,Tom.J

Unfortunately, the ETF manual (S592) doesnt have a schematic for the run 18 chassis. Im guessing that S592a might have it, but the ETF does not have that manual on hand.

Swizzyman,

I also found the S592A service manual in my stash. But probably just as ez for you to download it from the ETF site.

I am taking a break from the 4 for awhile. I'm now turning most of my attention to servicing a horizontal issue on the 5. But I am still doing some minor things with the Regent. Does anyone know how I could possibly replicate the metal insert on the channel knob? The volume knob lost its insert long ago. Any Ideas?
