After considerable fiddling with penetrating oil and a stout pair of needlenose, I managed to get the tuning dial apart by removing the “bolt” on the outside behind the dial pointer. At a glance, one can see why this was a one year only design! Asinine comes to mind. The selector arm assembly is now removed and now it’s time for the macgyver part . The strange part is that I’m unable to decipher how this whole thing stays together and operates as a tuner. Hopefully, once the broken parts are mended, it will become clear. I also had a chance to completely clean the chassis from years of nicotine and schmutz. Looks much better!
