'Critically sized'? 'bigger' the trannie's VA the better, AOTBE - IME

But, yes I'd doubt if it has an underspec'd trannie. All their tuners were HEAVY I recall.
I would be surprised if we couldn't, add a choke / up > the ufarads / energy storage / bypass it /quieter diodes, too!
I think his received noise is a 'nearby' - within 10K - his house, neigbourhood or town - RF transmitter / an RF-noise source.
Viz. A guy near to me had/has a welder, it ruined my main wide-band AM station, and generated more background noise on FM. My 'tuned random wire' Eastern lobe points over his HOUSE!!! ;-)!!!!! I'd aimed its narrow butterfly pattern at the local AM BCB t'er farm some 9 miles North of me.
If it ever comes back I finally will build the long-planned tuned and shielded large single AM loop of 75ohm coax - with a short break for pick up - within my deck area out back. Which would put him in the null, at last! About 3 metres by 4 and 'tuned' by the same cap (and the coil?). maybe even an amp. all switched.
