I am new at collecting antique radios,I have several but one has stumped me,and maybe someone here can help.I have a Silver Marshall (circa) 1930. The model # 1028 B The tubes from left to right are 2X224, 227, 224, 224, 227, 2X245 the bottom part a 35
The cabinet stands on legs with a phonograph on top the front sliding doors with the stamp Excello.
The radio needs work,but I can’t do anything without some kind of diagram.
Any help in pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

That model number does not show up in any data that I have. You also say that the bottom part has a 35 tube. I am guessing but if this radio has an upper and lower chassis, the bottom would be the power supply and should use a number 80 tube, not a 35.
My suggestion would be to look at the schematics for the early SM’s that use those tubes. Possibilities would be model 35A, 36A, 32A
etc. There are several that use those tubes and you may find one close enough to help. You can download the PDF’s from Nostalgia Air.
SM often sold just the chassis and and someone may have added the cabinet and the phono, either commercially or home assembled.
Good luck with this radio.

Thanks for the reply,but unfortunately none of the ones you mention fit the bill.the power supply is 80 but the upper part should have read from left to right 224, 224, 227, 224, 35, 224, 227 and forward 245, and 245.
There is also only six connectors on this radio,and only one field coil.
Any suggestion on what I can do.

I am afraid I do not have enough information or knowledge on Silver Marshall to comment further.
What I would suggest you do is post your question, perhaps in the Antique Radio Discussions section of the following forum.
The membership is larger and perhaps someone there specializes in your brand.

Thanks for trying.I have already posted with that group with no luck.I wanted an old rare radio,but not so rare that I cant find any info on it.Just my luck.
Thanks again. MarcAugust 12, 2010 at 1:02 am #1869
I have that radio going.It needs a bit more work,but that’s in the future.Looks great works good.Now I have a great 1931 radio that I don’t really know anything about. Except that it’s 1931 Silver Marshall radio under license by RCA in a Excello cabinet.
Wish I could post a few pictures.

Mark if you want to post pictures , have a look in the forum help section , or just follow this link
If after having a look at that, you are still unsure, either send me an email if I can help sort things out, or send me any pictures and I’ll post them on your behalf until you are able.
The tube lineup seems not so unusual for a TRF, You have it playing so that makes life easier as far as troubleshooting is concerned.
