Default Yamaha CA-series / CT-series parts

Hello everyone, I wonder if anyone of you got a parts unit CA or CT-series Yamaha amp or tuner??

I need two top cover screws, and a CA-1010 / CA-2010 wood cover.

Default DragonMaster..

Wood is best:-)

I have Yamaha's all over here and they take the same generic little black mystery metal screw everything Asian since 1970 and later has been made from. Easy thrift store find

I talk about the large cover screws.

The cover could be re-plated probably.

I also need some speaker terminals, one channel's positive is broken.

Anyone has a small bracket with the threads for the rear cover screw? And the spacer for the front one?

(These are missing on the right side of my amp)

Just hit reload or copy/paste the URL. It sees the browser referral as a hotlink.

I still emphasize scavenging. If you want those screws new, maybe a Keystone distributor or Acklands-Granger. As for the brackets, they made 4 million brackets to go with a million chassis and they aren't sold seperately

Default parts chassis....

Dragonmaster.. ok, enogh stuffis "missing" from your unit that maybe a part piece would make sense.

The wood case (I think it is on those units), could be sanded with a sanding block to get absolutely smooth and flat, the refinish them. As far as screws, ets, the screws should be available on any Yamaha chassis orthe same era, if not try someone like "The Bolt Supoply House" (Canadian). All they do are fasteners, and you guessed it, mainly threaded ones).

wish I could help further, but if I do see one of the old Yamahas as a parts piece, I 'll try to snag it for you.

OK, now about every inputs have only one or the other channel working. (Only AUX and PHONO 1 work with both channels)

Guess it's time to clean the selectors!

I should use DeoxIT and DeoxIT Gold(or SHIELD?) I suppose? (I still haven't bought any of them)

An other problem : When the room is cold, the amp won't start : The relay keeps clicking, with a strange squeal when activated. After a couple of seconds it finally starts with a continuous squeal(not through the speakers, from the amp itself) that stops after a while.

Also, there are some intermittent silent scratches / pops even when the preamp is off, I suppose it's due to transistor solders on the amp PCBs?
