The recapping is complete and several resistors were replaced. The radio sounds great despite not being realigned after disturbing parts and wiring in the RF and IF sections but I tried to maintain the original lead dress and it must have worked. The underneath of the chassis looks a lot better with the new and smaller parts.
Here is a view of most of the removed parts. I don’t know whether to museum them or trash them but probably will do the latter.
More to report after alignment and installation in the cabinet.
P.S. While testing I tuned to a couple of non part 15 stations and spent several minutes waiting for commercials to end. Found one spewing forth sports banter that I can’t believe anyone cares about. Fortunately, it is now tuned to Radio8z and some great music is filling the lab.
