RE: Completely re-cap the AM/FM front end while you're at it!

That's such a difficult job, rebuilding a tube-type tuner. Even 40 years ago, when these units didn't yet need such extensive maintenance and replacement of parts, most owners couldn't afford to have a front end refurbished. I've seen things fail in tuners (both tube and solid-state) that you just wouldn't think would ever go bad. I still remember a KLH that wouldn't tune properly... after many, many hours of testing, it turned out to have a shorted turn in the discriminator transformer. The customer was happy... me, not so much.
