{Collins} Re: [Collins] KWM-2 Low Gride Drive

Hello Gary,
I removed the rear panel from my KWS-1 and photographed the HV filament 
rectifier transformer wiring.  As far as I know, this is absolutely stock 
configuration (mine works).  You can see the wire color codes and the HV 
cable routing.  I hope that this helps you (and anybody else in a similar 
situation) get the old 'gal' on-the-air.  See the following link for the jpg 


Good Luck and let me (and everybody else) know how you make out.
Best 73,
Pete Zilliox, K5PZ
Dallas, Texas
