Hi Friends,
Recently I had these dissimilar pairs of 416A & 416-8B. The challenge was to make them look alike as matched pairs ..... physically and technically.
It all started with stripping out the old paint to re- painting them. Followed by re-magnetizing them to the factory original specs 11,000 gauss. Replacement of old terminals. Followed by the recone process using the all original 416 -8B recone parts till the final completion with the edge surround treatment and cork gasket attachment.
