Default Reception On Tuning Scale Not Functioning Right. Need Help

Hey Guys, This is probably an easy answer and fix but I'm new to this so I'm not getting it and need help.

I have a 60's am car radio that I just bench-tested and it only gets reception in one place on the tuning scale. Is there an adjustment I can make to change this and improve reception up and down the scale or do I need to replace something? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Try the antenna tuning adjustment near the antenna plug on most of these older radios. They are fairly sensitive to antenna tuning sometimes.

Hope this helps

Yeah, I tried the antenna trimmer and it got better but only on that one station. I've been told that there is some kind of adjustment inside and I can't remember what it is?
