Many thanks for this suggestion. I am assuming the solid state rectifier (SSR) contains the for diodes for full wave rectification. Is this correct? Are the pin designations the same as they are for the 5Y3? If so, then the SSR would be a true drop-in replacement not requiring pin wiring changes. Correct? Do you know if the the SSR has been used to replace a 5Y3, or two 2X3s, in radios similar to the De Forest Crosley 7D732 I am working on? Lastly, I am assuming my questions could apply equally to either the P:-YJR, or the T-SSR01. If I go for this option, then the Hammond 273BX would simply not use the 5 volt @ 3 amp secondary.
