I took time-out from the R-3** and BTA-1R2 and BC-610 and so on to get
the G-50 I bought a while back in operation. After stuffing the filter
capacitors and replacing a couple of capacitors in the cathode circuit
of the speech amp/preamp combo the G-50 came to life. However, I find
now that the variable capacitor on the receive VFO is having turning
problems. It's one of those geared internally capacitors with one shaft
inside another one. I guess the friction clutch or whatever makes those
things tick is worn out or maybe oily. Does anyone have a solution for
such a problem, other than replacing it?
