My new Ranger gets stranger by the minute.

Inspecting the modulator section, not only are the tubes missing but the 
cathode pin (8) has never been soldered to.  As far as I can tell,it 
should be connected to 8 on the other socket.

Furthermore, two of the pins on this socket are missing and they are not 
unused pins.  The sockets are riveted in so installing a new one would 
be a pain to say the least.

Question:  can new pins be inserted into such a socket to repair it?  If 
so, where would one get replacement pins?
