Some J-38 Help

Postby W4YAT » Fri Nov 24, 2017 5:59 pm

I need a little help with an old J-38 key that I purchased.

I took it apart and cleaned it, and was very careful to put it back together just as it came apart. However, When I hooked it up to a cable, it has a constant tone through the radio. The shorting bar is not under the metal tab and the lever is not making contact with anything. I used 3 different cables, all with the same result. I appears that it's shorted in some way, but I can't see where. Has anyone had this experience?

Thanks for your help.
