You might have to get a neighborhood kid over, Bill, to help you with 
that.  What it sounds like to me is, that the little coil has a broken 
wire either in the windings around the form, or at, or near the legs, if 
adjusting the coil makes no difference in audio phase.

Break out the magnifying glass!

Speaking of which, sometimes Harbor Freight (if you have one of those 
near-by) has a clamp-on, lit, magnifying glass for such delicate 
projects.  Last time I saw one there, it was reasonably priced at around 
$20.oo (19.95+tax).

Good luck!
