Which tuner to get and getting the most from it. Thank God, for the radio!

RE: "I'm not a big believer in break in times"

I'm from Missouri too, Mark, but it sounds like you've just proved "settling in times" to yourself, via your FM-3. I've had similar experiences with other components.

Without a picture, I can't say for sure what your "little army of caps all the same size lined up for duty" is for. Are there any resistors on the board? If so, given its placement, it might be David Berning's corrected de-emphasis circuit, described below in an FM-3 modification article.

I believe Sheldon Stokes marketed (or perhaps still does) this circuit on a board for the FM-3.

I found a post from back in July on the Ghost Town formerly known as the Asylum's Dynaco-Doctor Forum. You might take note of how many bad electrolytic caps the author found. (link below)
