    I recently purchased a used K1 but unfortunately it arrived damaged. The tuning knob has obviously taken a blow and the tuning potentiometer was broken (popped open) and the attachment wires were broken.

    I have obtained a new replacement pot, but I'm not sure where to reconnect the wires on the circuit board. I know which terminals are #1, #2, and #3. In have three questions...

    Do two wires connect to the same joint on the circuit board?
    Is the circuit board marked for wire # 2? (below and slightly to the right of the other two wires on the board)
    Can I reasonably resolder the wires to the board without removing the board from the radio, or are there components behind it which could be damaged?

    Many thanks.
