Mac, I would suggest that you be careful of just reforming
caps. If those in the modulator short, you could get a bad
transformer or other things. If you do reform and they make
it, check them for leakage in about a year of operating
(given they are the originals). There are several mods that
can be made, but some people will tell you they are a waste
of time. I have a 500A that I have made some modifications
in the speech amp and there is a couple of caps and a
particular resistor in the RF deck I would check.
