You are correct about the grid cap on the 6K7.  The person that changed the 
6K7 to a 6AC7 was looking for higher front-end gain.  To get it, he 
installed a shielded wire from the coil selector box through a hole in the 
small chassis plate next to the first RF socket, and from there to the G1 
pin on the socket.
