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.
