    How are you testing the frequency? and does it produce power in the 12 to the 15-watt range?

    OK I went back I see that you said there was no SSB power so if you see frequency Flash with the frequency counter at the antenna there must be something a slight bit of power if you have another radio you can listen to while transmitting on the Washington that might help decide what's happening. Another words if you can here the washington on a monitor radio on both am and sideband then we can suggest what might be the problem.

    Hopefully the PLL is not blown. If you end up finding out it is, I probably have at least 3-5 pulls. Let me know if you need one.
