To install tubes place radio on soft surface like a towel (soft rug) so not to scratch. Grab all four back pins with large needle nose pliers and pull out. Back will pull right out. See below.

Pliers on Pin

This shows one pin out and later you want to push them back in with your fingers NOT A TOOL.

Pliers out with pin

Always handle glass tubes with handkerchief and push them in from the metal/plastic round bottoms not the glass. Only push down on glass, if you have no choice, for hard to reach socket insertions (NEVER TWIST ON GLASS WHEN PUSHING INTO SOCKET ONLY PUSH STRAIGHT DOWN WHILE HOLDING GLASS WITH HANDKERCHIEF).

NEVER, PULL A TUBE OUT OF ITS SOCKET BY THE GLASS, always use two slot screwdrivers, one on each side, below the bottom and pry up one screwdriver, at a time. This means of course, you cannot get a hold of the metal or plastic round bottom portion, to pull out tube from its socket.

Note: on tube layout below to put in the 12SQ7 and the two 12SK7’s first.

Since these are in the front of chassis, which is still in its cabinet, they become hard to install, with the other tubes (35L6GT, 35Z5GT, 12SA7) already installed, in front of them.

Tube layout of this Belmont 6D-121

After tube insertions you must install the green and black antenna wires. The photos next show the Fahnestock type, push down, antenna clips. Push down, insert wire, then release to hold wires in clips. Of course the clips must be clipped on the un-insulated ends, of the two wires.

One antenna wire hooked up

Above photo is inside of Belmont Back, with black wire unhooked and green still hooked.

Both antenna wires hooked up

Above photo is inside of Belmont Back, with black wire and green still hooked.

Below photo shows chassis out of cabinet with back attached. You should be able to install tubes and antenna wires without removing the chassis.

Remember, if you want to remove chassis for any reason. Side knob, center screw, must be totally removed from center of dial, then it will pull straight off just like the volume knob.

Always handle tubes from the bottom pins or metal/plastic bottom and try not to, touch the glass at all but if must, use a handkerchief.
