I would put a kiwa filter in place of the if cans, or
in between them.
Look at the standard filter module, it has no loss through the filter,
works like a mechanical filter, and you can tack the wires onto
the circuit without any drastic drilling or blasting.
I use there filters in the homebrew receivers and they work
better then you would believe.
Plus, they are small.
I dont have a diagram, but the filters work best just
after the mixer and before the 1st IF amp.
In the homebrew receivers, I used a broad band IF trans after the mixer
(from old tube type car radios!) then into the filter.
If you have any radio with a 455KHz IF, these filters are easy to add.
