I am thinking now that it is something like that but my brain is getting 
soggy trying to trace the wires.

What I did find is a 100K from pin 9 going ground when it is supposed to 
be going to the vfo.  There is a .005 cap going to ground with a jumper 
wire around it.  There is a choke that is supposed to go to two lugs on 
a term strip but one end is soldered to a black wire that disappears 
into the mess.

Also, the 15 mf dual ele under the keyer is actually a resistor and I 
thought I had it my the throat.  Replaced it and it made not the 
slightest difference.

I gave it up and came in for now.

Looks like tomorrow's Noontime Forum will be back to the rice box.
