In case you fail to find a solution for the finals, there is another route you 
might follow.
The driver, final amp, and bandpass filter assembly are three separate units, 
connected with RG-174 jumpers.  It is possible to completely bypass the final 
stage, plug the driver directly into the BPF module and have a fully functional 
10w transceiver.

Then you could look for an external amplifier.

A Local ham who is going blind in the  past year took both his general  and 
extra  class exams successfully, and said he wanted to do that while he could 
still see well enough with a magnifying glass to study.  

He was a tech for many years, and did a lot of tower work for locals free of 
charge.  Anyway, he has very limited funds and can't afford an HF rig.  I have 
a Tentec Triton 4, which has bad finals, but the RX  works just fine.  I am 
looking for a cheap or free working final amplifier  box on the back to replace 
this one.  I also have the matching digital readout which will help him 

The control board and the board with the amp switching relay have a problem, 
too, but we should be able to work  those problems out, but in case some one 
has a more complete radio, it might help.  Later rigs may have similar finals, 
but I'm  not certain.  I appreciate  any help, so I can give David a working 
transceiver, that will be easy to use with his increasing handicap.
