Variable air capacitor help


Active Member
Jul 7, 2015
I am trying to replace a variable cap. According to the schematic it calls for a 0-15pf. I have a spare amp of the same kind that
at some point i will repair but for right now its for replacement parts. On the parts amp it has a E.F Johnson 167-2.
When i look for a replacement the only one i could find was on Ebay and its listed as a 167-0002-001 which on a catalog i found
part#167-2 with 3.5-27pf. A couple of questions are they all the same part? can i replace a 0-15 with a 3.5-27?
OR am i reading the numbers wrong? All i can go by is the schematic show a 0-15pf spec and my spare amp has what looks to be the same looking
part with 167-2 stamped on it but the one im working on has nothing on it. But they do look the same, I can not measure it as its broken in pieces. so i think this on is ok to buy https://www.ebay.com/itm/2750309373...d=link&campid=5336136228&toolid=20001&mkevt=1 Unless anyone tells me otherwise or where i can buy one cheaper. Sorry for babbling on.

    My first thought was the i.r.s. may be interested in a long term money making scam without proper taxes being paid..probably more than electronics involved.

    My first thought was why hasn't someone paid him a visit. I mean, his address is posted above.

    Good news! I opened an appeal case after eBay sided with superhawkwss6. I also opened an IC3 case & sent that information to eBay. Within an hour they responded, reversed their decision and returned all of my money. Unfortunately, superhawkwss6 stole my CB radio and eBay will likely not suspend or close his account, but rather allow him to continue his criminal activity. I think I'll still file a report with our sheriff's dept (the sheriff is a friend of mine) though I know this type of crime isn't worth their time. This guy needs to be stopped and I'm certainly going to do my best to make that happen.
