Prior to replacing the capacitors, I couldn't even troubleshoot the other problems my rig had. Stray signals from leaking electrolytics were turning on transistors and shorting out the driver and final bias. Afterward I could actually measure proper signals again and proceed to troubleshoot other problems. It also made tremendous improvements to the audio quality of receive and transmit and overall rig stability.
I did find a couple of errors in my kit but this was due to errors in the original radio documentation. Klondike Mike was very responsive to my feedback and updated the kit with the corrections. I highly recommended their kits.
To put it simply, Mike is my go to guy for cap kits! Always a pleasure! Thank you!
The PCB's in both radios are the same. I also include the needed capacitors for the 100w PA output stage. All of the radial/axial capacitors in this kit are rated at 25v or better, which meets or exceeds those specified by the manufacturer. A higher rated component means that it will last longer in your unit. The components in this kit are made by tier 1 manufacturers (Rubycon, Nichicon, Panasonic, Multi-Comp Pro, etc.) with no counterfeits. A link to a down-loadable parts list will be provided. This kit includes 56 components in total (for both 25w and 100w versions).
The capacitors will be packed in a thick walled plastic envelope that is nicely labelled. The plastic envelope has a hang hole so that it can be placed on your workbench peg board. This plastic envelope will then be placed in a cardboard re-enforced bubble mailer to make sure it arrives safely at your location. I will also include a label that can be placed inside the radio identifying that new electrolytics have been installed. Restore your radio back to its original glory with the proper kit!
Due to inaccuracies in manufacturers documentation and undocumented revisions by same, this kit may not be a perfect match for your radio. It will be close but there is the potential that your radio may have one of these undocumented inaccuracies of which I am not responsible for supplying any after purchase additions or replacements.
** The buyer is fully accountable for proper installation of these parts. Any damage to a radio due to improper installation is the responsibility of the buyer. **
