pulled the chassis cover off the bottom of the chroma section (this one has that done point to point not PCB) yikes a bunch more wax paper caps. I can see this is going to take a while. One of my other unrestored 5's had a PCB for the chroma section. interesting that they are both considered 5's this is not a minor difference (at least in construction, maybe the circuits are the same).

there is a lot of wax film on on the PCB from the caps that must have oozed wax which then flowed all over the PCB. Normally I don't bother to clean them but these are so bad (wax film with dust captured) that I cant read anything. So I spent a little bit of time to clean up the boards.

well the 1st power filter cap was badly shorted, so I don't think I am going to waste any time on this. All the cans are very easy to get at with the bone saw so they will all get zipped off and caps installed from the top. using this process leaves all the orig lead dress undisturbed and is very very quick. 4 cans would prob take me no more than an hour to do if I get it all setup ahead of time (have all the caps on hand).
