Neil:

You can download a manual for the TR-3 from BAMA . Just do a Search for- -   http//bama.sbc.edu/ - -  and your there. The CW key plugs in the 1/4" phone jack on the back and the microphone uses a Special size three conductor phone plug and may be on the right side of the rig. These plugs fit Drake and Collins radios and I think they are 2.5mm , they look like the 1/4" Stereo plugs but a little smaller. Good luck with the TR-3 and hope you enjoy Drake equipment as much as I do.

You will still need a manual for the correct tune-up procedure.  The 12JB6's in the final are fairly easily damaged by incorrect tuning or operating out of resonance.  The final tubes are becoming scarcer and would require neutralization if replaced.
