Default Sansui SR838, another power transformer shot

Hello,
I have a nice SR838. My audio tech tells me that the power transformer is shot. The part # is 4002642.
Do you have one?
Or do you know the specs that are needed to rewind it?
Thanks in advance.

Supply some transformer data or schematics, near impossible to sub this without knowing it's specs or construction details.
Could also post on Audiokarma Home Audio Stereo Forums as well

Thanks R,
The problem is all I have is a part number. I cannot obtain any data or a schematic. I am hoping that someone can help.

A nice one, Sansui SR838 - AudioKarma.org Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums
Ask these folks SANSUI-PARTS-SHOP
Can download a service manual for $4.99 from Download SANSUI SR-838 Service Manual
Then you are a further along so you can find a sub. Looks like a simple transformer, the simpler it is the easier it will be to find one, if multiple taps/secondaries then it become more difficult, I am sure that there is a solution, this looks like a nice old direct drive TT, worth fixing, I heard on the radio today advertising TT for sale, lots of them, some at less than $500, okay its xmas 2012 not 1977
Gotta get this fixed fast, so you listen to your xmas records, let me guess Bing white xmas :-)
