TNX for the answer Mr. Glenn, boy I am sure glad just a few of the red mica caps have to be replaced and not the lot of them. Sure would be awhile taking care of that. The person whom wired this rig at the factory made 1 complete turn of the wire on each terminal for each component, sometimes 2. Soldered very well also. With the layout as it is the receiver, it had to have been assembled in pieces that were already wired and then put together for final assembly. I'm guessing this is how it is done, even today. While replacing 1 of the Black Beautys I found a resistor blown apart, that was right under the big cap. R86 @ 39K that was in the AVC 455 IF coil, pin C along with the Black Beauty being changed. I'm sure the AVC and Noise Clipper wasn't working correctly and the problem might have been hiding from a previous owner in the past. The big cap hid it very well to say the least. Looking forward to aligning this unit, the manual says use 100 Mv reading for S9 signals. So I am guessing this should be the benchmark used for this radio instead of today's 50 Mv used for more modern radios. TNX to Glenn, Mr. Carl and the rest of the Forum members for their help in getting this BA back on the bands.
