I feel your pain....  i'd try injecting RF directly to the grid of the 
2nd mult stage to see if you get a desired output. Also check that the 
lettered dials are lined up correctly to their contacts. If my memory 
is correct,  this ensures the proper sets of freq determining ckts are 
switched in....  gud luck
