The hardest part of the PTO job is getting inside the
PTO, which for the Corsair could not be easier. You
just take off the bottom cover, remove the main knob
and front panel mounting screws, then flip the PTO box
over so the shaft points toward the back of the radio.
Lay it on a wash cloth in the back part of the radio,
don't even remove the wires. Open the PTO box and do
Anyone that hasn't been inside the PTO box needs to
know that there is a PC board inside there and any
dissolved grease or new lubricant that goes in there
drops all over that board.
The Century 21 is different, you really need to
disassemble the radio to do that job. Hard to imagine
it, but Ten Tec will still perform this service after
all these years at a reasonable rate.

I have not tried it on a century 21, but have seen
pictures of the pto and it looks identical to my pto.
There is a discription of how to get at the pto of a c
21 at the ten tec museum on line. Even though they
look identical getting to it in the 21 is different
from my corsair.
